Brainwave Controlled Ears as Communication Organ

Brainwave Controlled Ears as Communication Organ

Neuroware pitch their latest product as a human organ communication tool which expresses a user's mental condition before and during speech.

Not a strong addition to the Transhumanist movement, but interesting all the same, ‘Necomimi’ offers wearers a new form of physical communication via a set of brainwave-controlled ears.

Japanese brainwave-driven fashion/gadget company Neuroware pitch their latest product as a human organ communication tool which expresses a user’s mental condition before and during speech.

They explain:

Just put on necomimi and if you are concentrated on, this cat’s ear shaped machine will rise. When you are relaxed, your new ears lie down.

If concentration and relaxing time comes at the same time, your new ears rise and move actively. In general, professional sport players demonstrate their abilities most in this condition.

If people show their feeling even they don’t express, what differences will be happened? Interesting? Ashamed? Scared?

In the beginning, people may feel strange, however people are getting accustomed to control their new ears by brain waves if they keep using. At this moment, necomimi can be part of your body.

Watch the clip of people trying out the technology at the Smile bazaar, Omotesando Hills below;
