Cat ears that respond to your emotions



Ever feel like you want to express your emotions without saying it out loud?  Ever see a cat raise and lower its ears according to its mood?  Well Neurowear has just invented the Necomimi.  And it does just that.

The Necomimi is a robotic cat ear that you put on your head and it uses sensors to measure brainwaves.  The onboard chip then determines if you’re concentrating or relaxed, which then translates to the ears moving up and down.

Neurowear hopes to have it ready for the holiday season.  We should put the Necomimi on babies so adults would know if their baby is really happy or just grumpy.  Plus it makes everyone look so kawaii (means “cute” in Japanese). Videos after the jump.

    Gosh how exciting I wonder how the ears would react during a red hot sex session? 🙂

    Awww, kawaii O.O That accessory is perfect to give to girlfriends that pretend to be indifferent and “don’t know what they want” for instant visual feedback.
