Animal hats have been something of a trend over the last year or so. Those of you who love those, or just enjoy dressing up as a cute character, will be interested in Necomimi. These brainwave controlled cat ears, created by a team comprised of an anthropologist, media artist, designer, producer, and neuroscientist, can detect your mood and express it through motion. Intrigued, we decided to try a pair on for ourselves.
Assembly Minor assembly is required to get Necomimi working. First I had to unscrew the battery door. You dont need a screwdriver — a coin will work. The Necomimi requires four triple A batteries. Screw the battery door back in and fit the furry cat ears over the motors on the headset.
