When opening the package that reached the editorial department ... ...

A cushion with glossy fur coat appeared. Qoobo has two colors, Husky gray and French brown, and it was Husky gray that I could borrow this time.

The whole is like this. With a simple design that only a tail is growing in a round cushion, when looking at the distanceHorseshoe crabIt has a shape like.

By 330 mm in width and 540 mm in depth, the image below compares iPhone X with long side 143.6 mm.

The thickness is 160 mm. There is also a fur part of the surface, impression that there is quite a volume as cushion.

There are fasteners on the side of the cushion.

The inside of the fur contained the body of the cushion.

The part of the fur and the cushion body can be separated. Since the pattern of the fur part is scheduled to be released, it is also possible to customize with a favorite cloth.

This is Qoobo's tail. Since it is not powered on, it is in a state of being extended straight with the pin.

Qoobo 's switch is at the base of the tail, and when I looked it was a small hole.

I inserted a finger a little and looked for it, there certainly was a response like a switch. If you put this in, the tail of Qoobo starts to move.

You can see the state of Qoobo reacting as you stroke while actually reading with the following movie. Switching on does not work all the time, but if the human hand touches it, the tail will move in response to it.

Just not simply shaking the tail buzzly, the tail angle, speed and tempo change depending on the stroke strength and speed. As the tail moves, you hear a small mechanical sound, but it sounds like a small animal's barking sound, this is an ant with this. It weighs about 1 kg and never feels "too heavy" even if it is placed on the knee.

"I feel relieved when I'm getting a little stiff when I'm gonna be handsome" "I'm just touching while watching TV, reading books or doing personal computer operations." " There was also opinion that it will be healed rather than thinking that it reacts properly by waving the tail properly. "

As Qoobo's cushion is a bit thick and somewhat elastic, it was an unexpected discovery that when he actually reads the book on his knees and just like an armrest it calms down.

Next time I will sit on a chair. The cushion had more resilience than I thought, but there was not that it hurts the machine that is inside hitting the butt.

If you look at the movie below, you can see how Qoobo laid on the chair by standing or sitting moves the tail.

Also, trying putting Qoobo in a paper bag as a trial, it seems that a cat like you can not see it as if a favorite cat entered into a paper bag and relaxed. Although it shakes the tail, it is a pretty point to sit out a tail on your own once you leave it for a while for a while.

Actually using Qoobo, it is not completely the cat's tail itself, but when you touch it, the part that will respond with just the movement of the tail calmed down more than expected and it's cute! There is a mysterious charm that makes you want to end up losing rather than want to be crazy. Some of the editorial staff continued their work while stroking on the knees, saying that he healed so much that he wanted to "personalize it" and healed it.
