Back in 2006..

..we decided we wanted a Tail or two – perhaps a fox Tail for walking around the Park. Maybe a pin-stripe cat Tail for going to the Bank. Possibly a wolf Tail for lounging around the house. So we started to develop one. It had to be flexible and light, and very programmable so it would do all the different moves we wanted..

And so by 2012..

..we had launched a Kickstarter, which funded the development of the first one hundred Tails! It was a success – and there really were other people out there that wanted a remote controlled, super-expressive Tail..

Then in 2015..

..we set up the Mechanical Tail Company, expanded the range of different Tails we make, and set up a Tail Festival, an online forum, and new even more sophisticated ways of controlling our Tails!

And now, in 2016?
