Qoobo | A Tailed Cushion That Heals Your Heart Kickstarter Campaign
Qoobo is a therapeutic robot in the form of a cushion with a tail. When caressed, it waves gently. When rubbed, it swings playfully. And, it occasionally wags just to say hello. It’s comforting communication that warms your heart the way animals do. Begin your “tail therapy” today and wrap yourself with fuzzy love.

WHAT'S Qoobo

We worked to develop a technology that can move your heart and a cushion tail. 1. Through trail and error, we developed a mechanism that closely mimics the complex movements of an animal's tail




Qoobo intrigued me because the shape of the tail and the ways it moves just bring a smile to my face. When you are stressed, I think this could comfort you and heal you. It's a refreshing concept to have humans and a robot communicate only through tail movements without relying on sounds or facial expressions. As a user, you would project your emotions onto how the tail moves, and you could get a sense of healing from that. Ifelt it after using the cushion myself.

Qoobo may be the perfect cat. It's soft, responsive, and will never scratch, dismiss, or leave you. It's also a robot.

On first blush, I wasn't quite sure what to make of Yukai Engineering's Qoobo, but as soon as I picked the thing up it was pretty clear that it didn't matter. It's adorable and I couldn't stop petting it and that's pretty much the point.

As a cat owner myself, I was surprised by how realistic the tail moved, especially with how its wagging intensity increased as I petted it harder (my cat would eventually warn me with a bite).
