Qoobo is a Robot Pillow with a Tail
Posted on October 13, 2019
Qoobo was first introduced at CEATEC Japan 2017 by Yukai. The company bills it as a "tailed cushion that heals your heart." It was originally offered as a Kickstarter item. It is now available on Amazon.com.
Professor Nobuhiro Sakata of Dokkyo Medical University says, "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. I felt it after using the cushion myself."
