The Japanese are always coming up with cool fashion ideas. First there was the LED teeth, then an air-conditioned jacket and now, this really awesome headband that can read your brainwaves. While it might sound sort of creepy and weird, it actually is quite brilliant.

The Necomimi, (a combination of the Japanese words for cat and ear) is a cool headband that is fitted with two furry cat ears that respond to what is going on in your mind. If you are seriously concentrating on your school work or any other activity, the ears will be upright. Relax a little and down they go, all droopy. The best part is, you can make them swirl up and down actively, if you take turns concentrating and relaxing.

While it may sound magical, the headbands are just fitted with battery-powered brainwaves sensors - A technology that has been used for many years in the medical field. Also, though they are currently being made just for fun, with some additional tweaking the Necomimi could become a useful tool in helping to decipher the feelings of people with mental disabilities or those, who cannot speak.

if you are planning on getting yourself a pair, be warned that these cat ears do not come cheap and will set you back at least a few hundred dollars. Also, try not to wear them at school and help your teacher figure out the exact moment you dozed off in that social studies class!
