Back in 2014 I moved to Japan and had the experience of a lifetime. I was all set to be an English teacher, and ready to move to my first big Japanese city, Nagoya. It's located in the Aichi prefecture in central Japan. I spent a hot and humid August training, teaching, and exploring in the "peaceful" city.
Have you ever heard of Necomimi? They're cat ears designed to respond to your brainwaves. Pretty cool, huh? The name "Necomimi" means "cat ears" in Japanese. Clever one, Neurosky!
They're a relatively new product released in 2012 and they use technology that's typically reserved for laboratories or hospitals. It's a clever and creative idea that I absolutely love.
The ears are motors that turn according to brainwaves which represent your "mood". There are two sensors that detect your brainwaves, a forehead sensor and one that attaches to your ear. This is how the magic works.
I've literally used these ears for more than an a hour at a time and I love it. I'm a fan of cosplay and can imagine wearing these for all sorts of reasons. Nevermind the fact that they're supa kawaii!
If you're interested in learning more about Necomimi, click on one of the links below to watch a video! If you would like to purchase the product I would recommend visiting their website directly by clicking on the link provided and not using a third party (speaking from experience). Neurowear is also in the process of putting the finishing touches on a tail! Then you could truly have the whole set! Unfortunately I can think of a lot of situations where a tail would be inconvenient. Still, my curiosity is piqued.
In the interest of full disclosure I purchased and received these ears originally back in January. The ears were phenomenal except by random chance they happened to be defective. I immediately contacted Neurosky and they generously helped me. Together we were able to come to a solution and they sent me new ears. Thank you Neurosky for having excellent customer service. I finally have my ears again!
