It’s a personal dream of mine to look more like a cat. This gadget is the obvious next step for me.
Combining great science with sweet-looking fluffy bits these mind-controlled kitty ears called “necomimi” were made in Japan by fashion company Neurowear.
Best of all -they’re going to be available in shops. Tiny sensors on the headband bit detect whether you are concentrating or relaxed and adjust the position of the ears accordingly. If you are relaxed, the ears flop forwards, if it detects higher brainwave activity – for example when you are thinking hard, the ears will prick up.
It’s great that brainwave detecting technology is now so cheap, though still very elementary.
It reminds us of this brainwave-controlled screwball scramble game that Gerald tested out last year..[via Wired]
