Neurowear Necomimi

Electronic cat ears that respond to your emotions WTF

Try! “necomimi” in Paris@Japan Expo 2011

necomimi is a headband with a MindWave brain wave sensor manufactured by NeuroSky[4] and motorized cat shaped ears programmed to turn up when the wearer concentrates and to turn down when he or she relaxes. It runs for 4 hours on 4 AAA batteries and has interchangeable Cat, Dog, and Devil Horn ears.[5] In November 2011, Time Magazine selected necomimi as one of the 50 best inventions of the year.[6][7]

Originally planned for international release in 2011 “at a price of several hundred dollars,”[8] necomimi was launched in Japan in April 2012.

necomimi was demoed at Gadget Show Live in April 2012.[9] necomimi was launched in Japan at the Nico Nico Cho-Kaigi at Makuhari Messe in Chiba City on April 28, 2012.[10][11][12] Ayaka Komatsu modeled the ears on April 29, 2012.[13] The US price is $99.95 sold out temporarily but is back in stock.[14] necomimi was sold at Japan Expo in July 2012 for €150.[15]

While there are few official ear options available, there are many individual crafters who create a great variety of ear covers. Many of these are sold at conventions and through Etsy. A new company called Emoki will focus on making bear, fox, wolf, and bunny ears with a variety of colors. [16][17][18]

Limited edition necomimi were created to promote The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki. The ears’ color matches the titular wolf children.[19] Another limited edition was created by Nobuki Hizume and modeled by Nagisa.[20]

necomimi was launched in the U.S. at San Diego Comic-Con International in July 2012.[21] Christina Bonnington reviewed the headband for Wired.[22] Andrew Tarantola reviewed it for Gizmodo.[
