We’ve seen some really odd products come out of Japan over the years. I think the shippo brain controlled tail concept is one of the strangest. This device looks like a fluffy white cat tail that is designed for people wear around their waist.
The user wears some sort of sensor on their head that is supposed to read the thoughts and wag the tail. The tail supposed to wag at a speed that goes with the mood of the user. When the user is excited, the tail wags very quickly.
When the user is relaxed, the tail wags at a slower pace. The app that runs on the smart phone also allows wearer to search out places other users of the shippo found relaxing. The device is a concept for now and there’s no indication of when it will come to market.
