Mico‘ are a new type of headphones unveiled by Neurowear (the same company behind the brain-controlled cat ears) at SXSW. They play music based on your mood, selecting from a database of 100 songs to offer something that will complement how the wearer is feeling.

‘mico’ frees the user from having to select songs and artists and allows users to encounter new music just by wearing the device. The device detects brainwaves through the sensor on your forehead. Our app then automatically plays music that fits your mood.

Wearer’s Mood Affects The Music Played By Brain-Controlled Headphones

DVICE reports that Mico connects to your iPhone through Bluetooth and picks songs that have been “neuro-tagged” using a special music app. So if you are feeling sad, it will play some blues, and if you are feeling hyper, it will play some dance music.

You can also shake the iPhone to change the song that is playing. Check out the first demo of Mico in the video below:
