The motorized ears on this adorable headband by Neurowear move in relation to your brainwaves. Syuzi @ Fashioning Technology writes:

Anthropomorphic fashion is commonplace in Japan having many subcultures that fetishize the insanely cute. But this novel approach to a high tech “fashion” headband steps up the “cutesy” factor to an insanely new level. I certainly can’t help but want a pair.

    Yeaaaaaa, it might be labeled “slightly cute” on an “insanely hot chick”, but put those ears on a 400 pound dude in a wife beater t-shirt and gym shorts and the cuteness factor falls pretty fast.

    That’s cute; it acts depending to what we think. What if I gat
    mad, what would be the reaction of the ears? I can say Japan is really has high technology
    than other country and they’re good in making robots and manufacturing high
    tech gadgets.
