Neurowear - let your brain move your ears

This week’s video is from Michael Moyer’s post on brain-machine interfaces. This kind of technology can be used for just about anything – gaming, cursor control, brain training and brain-to-brain communication, to name a few. Right now, a few devices are already on the market. This video features the Necomimi, a Japanese device that uses brain waves to control a pair of fuzzy animal ears that you wear. Yes, her brain is actually controlling the movement of the ears – you can visualize her emotions while she eats a donut or passes by a handsome man. It will be extremely interesting to see what devices come next!
