Meow Tech Fashion
In Japan cats are very popular. So popular that soon you may see many people walking around with cat ears on their heads!
‘Necomimi’ (cat ears) are hi-tech fashion. Not only are they fun to wear, they’re designed to communicate. Necomimi uses non-invasive neuroimaging technologies to read and express the emotions of the wearer.
If the person is nervous or focused, the ears shoot straight up. If the person is relaxed, the ears lay flat. The ears swirl around in a circle if the person is relaxed, but focused on a specific activity, like a game or reading a book. When brain activity is low, the ears flap gently back and forth.
Neurowave plans to launch Necomimi internationally later this year, at a price of several hundred dollars per unit. Alrighty then…
