Japanese company developing brainwave-controlled cat ears

Your rating: None Average: 5 (6 votes)

Neurowear is developing a pair of cat ears which respond to the brain activity of their wearer.

Called "necomimi", the ears are mounted on a headband containing sensors, which pick up brain activity and move the ears accordingly. As the wearer concentrates, the ears point upwards, and when they relax the ears flop down and forwards.

Any news as to what they will cost? or if they will still be bulky when they are released? because they look a little chunky to wear practically.

Also, it's "nekomimi" not "necomimi" xD

"necomimi" is apparently a brand name in this case, as opposed to nekomimi.

Well, that's ok then xD

Japanese are weird.

And I don't blame them!

I mean, they survived the post-WWII cultural tsunami... somehow.
