Necomimi—are you kidding?


When I read about these brain-controlled cat ears, I thought it was a joke at first. But I guess these are an actual product you can buy here. It makes sense in a way. In this cat and electronic gadget-obsessed country, this is a perfect blend!

Now I know what I can give as Japanese souvenirs when I go back to the US this summer. Though I have several family members who LOVE cats, including my son, to me they're mostly annoying (but occasionally cute). I'm a dog person for sure. I'll be waiting for the inumimi to come out next.
