Softbank's new product isn't just any old cell phone strap. It's called Homeido and it's the world's first human sized (because it is an actual human) maid strap. Check out the ad below and keep reading for some more information on this revolutionary product.
If you're thinking that this can't possibly be real, then you're right. It's an April Fools' Day video. Homeido is, as stated above, an actual living maid cell phone 'strap' that follows you around and reminds you not to look at your phone while walking. The name is a combination of meido, which is the Japanese pronunciation of "maid" and homeru, which means to "praise."
Coming in at 158 cm tall and... her weight is a "secret," this sentient cell phone strap comes in four versions. The first shown in the video is the tsundere type. She doesn't mince her words and she isn't afraid to get a little rough with you when you're behaving badly. In the video, you can hear her say "A Master that looks at his phone while walking looks like an an idiot!" after her alarm (the slap to the face) goes off.
|Tough love from Homeido|
|Moe moe kyun!|
|You're so cool!|
No word on the price though, but then again, Homeido isn't real so, it doesn't really matter.
