This battery-powered, hair fastener has two coupled rings to flex and flip your tresses, just like a real pony’s tail! Banish flies and mosquitoes while attracting admirers with curls sweeping past your cheek or alluring locks doing a jitterbug bounce behind flirtatious eyes.

(??) I trust this also comes with built-in artifical pony-tail...? http://moniplex.com.../pix/p12d5f5dbf.jpg

       Great for all those horse-crazed teen-aged girls. ("Look, ma! I can kill flies just like my horse Brandy!") Just think of the reduction of the fly population that these devices could bring about.

       I like this. It needs to occasionally change from a gentle swishing to an agitated snapping motion.
bristolz, Apr 05 2003
  

       I want one. I would like to snap people without them knowing it was me (mwhahahaha).

       Where's [sparki]? She'd like this. I'll give you a croissant on her behalf.

       Can there be a small remote that has buttons on it like: Breeze, Snap, and a pulse so that what Pericles describes can be accomplished?

       It could be marketed under the name "Medusa".

       Mood hair! Straight up for surprise, arched for annoyance... +

       smiley: Or a small, hair-tufted joystick, and a left-right slider for pigtails.

       A crupper, when using a harness or pack saddle.

       //You know what you find under a pony's tail?//   

       Don't look a gift horse in the back of the mouth

       I like horses...

       I have many small dreadlocks, could thes be animated too? I'd be like a sea urchin! Yeah!

       //occasionally change from a gentle swishing to an agitated snapping motion//
How about some bio-sensors that change the motion based on the wearer's mood?
krelnik, Apr 08 2003
  

       or change the motion based on the heart-rate...   

       hmm.. intriguing idea...
:-), Apr 10 2003
  

       "...I'd be like a sea urchin!"   

       or Medusa.

       I thought of something like this for a devils tail on a halloween costume. perhaps put beat dection into it and your hair will bounce along with music
i-Mer, Apr 10 2003
  

       < Adds "dection" to her vocabulary >
bristolz, Apr 10 2003
  

       Sounds charming, but...   

       This would hurt like hell. Any of you ever ride in a convertible with long hair? It stings when it hits you.
