I’ve seen a bunch of gadgets over the years and maybe look at them and wonder WTF. I mean seriously, what are some of these people thinking when they design these gadgets? One of the biggest WTF gadgets I’ve seen in recent memory is the Necomimi Brainwave Cat Ears.
These are giant, plush cat ears that are articulated and attached to a headband with a sensor that reads your brainwaves. The idea is that the ears can convey one of three possible emotional states. Not only is the gadget bizarre, but it’s expensive too at $99.95.
The ears will stand straight up when something catches the user’s attention, lay down when the user is relaxed, and will move back and forth when the user is highly focused and highly relaxed. I can see these being interesting a Halloween, but if you were them any other time people are going to think you’re nuts.
