We appreciate your continued support.

Today, the Kickstarter campaign for Tailly unfortunately expired without achieving our funding target. Therefore, we have started to prepare for another campaign on Indiegogo. In addition, I am negotiating with a company to obtain funds required to manufacture Tailly. Please wait for a while. We appreciate your continued support.

We are happy to see that the Tailly Kickstarter page currently has over 5,600 likes and that 168 backers pledged nearly £12,000 during the life of the campaign. Moreover, going into 2013, interview requests for Tailly have increased. Although we are very grateful for this turn of events, the timing was perhaps too late for this campaign.

There also seem to be cultural differences between Japan and other countries that we hadn't foreseen. Some people think that Tailly is an odd invention. Although it looks like a toy, it is also a biometric feedback device and a tool suggesting a possible future of augmented human abilities.

Another factor may that the concept of crowdfunding through sites such as Kickstarter is not as commonly known as I had originally imagined. For example, there were many questions of the type: "How can I buy a Tailly?"

However, the crowdfunding model suits my purposes and I would like to continue using it in the future because I hope to commercialize products that are not easily produced by major manufacturers.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We sincerely look forward to bringing you Tailly in the near future.
Please stay tuned to Tailly and KILUCK.
