Necomimi: Brain-Controlled Cat Ears Have Arrived

In this week's example of something that will only get you laid at a furry party, we bring you a wiggly cat ear headband that's controlled by your emotions.

We'll admit it's been quite the year for cats in pop culture -- we've seen cat hair jewelry, cat tattoos, even a woman confessing her (fake) love for cats on eHarmony. And now, from across the world, we can thank the Japanese company Neurowear for its Necomimi headband that triggers "cat-like ear motions," for happiness, stress, and concentration.

Neurowear writes that the chunky-ass mood ring for your your head is still in production. So sorry cat crazies, you'll just have to wait for the price tag of true happiness (note: insanity is absolutely free).

Check out the Necomimi in action after the jump ...

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
