Necomimi; Brainwave-Controlled Cat Ears!

June 17, 2011

 – – Japan has done it again!  You may know that there are brainwave-controlled wheelchairs, so why not brainwave-controlled cat ears?  The devices by the electronics company Neurowear, dubbed Necomimi, stand up when the wearer concentrates or sees something interesting.  When you relax, your decreasing brain activity makes the ears fall down.- –I swear I am not making this up!

I wish that they had made the ears more realistic, and that a fox model was available!  I don’t know what would happen if you strapped the ears onto an actual cat.  Still, the idea keys into the notion of an augmented human body, and possibly a tail will follow that responds to brain waves; this may be furry of the future…
