Robot Tail That Moves In Reaction To Human Movement

This is a truly bizarre item from (where else?) Japan. It's a robotic tail for people called SiliFulin. The tail, by artist Ryota Kuwakubo, is designed to react to your movements using a series of servo motors to power the segments.

It's supposed to give humans the feeling of having the tail that was lost during the evolutionary process.

It was featured on the Graham Norton Show!

Those were hardly "natural movements", and this thing's hardly "art".
