About necomimi




People think that our bodies have limitations, but just imagine if we had organs that don’t exist, and could control that new body?
We created new human organs that use a brainwave sensor.
Necomimi is the new communication tool that augments the human bodies and abilities.
This cat’s ear shaped machine utilizes brainwaves and expresses your emotional state before you start talking. Just put on Necomimi and if you are concentrating, this cat’s ear shaped machine will rise. When you are relaxed, your new ears lie down. If you are concentrating and relaxing at the same time, your new ears will rise and actively move. In general, professional sports players demonstrate this ability the most.
What will happen when people show their feelings even when they don’t express them? Interesting? Ashamed? Scared? In the beginning, people may feel strange, however people quickly become accustomed to controlling their new ears with their brainwaves. Right now, Necomimi can become a part of your body.
