If you were anywhere near the major blogs in 2011 you would have heard about this amazing invention, half-science fiction, half-kawaii cute Japan cosplay! The Necomimi is a headband that lets you communicate how you think and feel... with cat ears! Forget the Prius, the Gameboy or even the Walkman. The most extraordinary Japanese innovation is actually this Necomimi, born out of the streets of Harajuku.
Japanese fashion electronics company Neurowear created this remarkable accessory, which is powered by "NeuroSky technology", giving people the chance to express their moods in a way that is intuitive, instant and definitely unique.

As the makers say, forget wearing your heart on your sleeve, now you can wear it on your head!
