Japanese Company Creates Mind-Controlled Wearable Tails
By Anthea Quay, 24 Sep 2012
Japanese company Neurowear has released a prototype of a brain wave-controlled tail.
The fluffy tail ‘Shippo’ moves according to its wearer’s mood and emotions—and reflects it through wagging.
Depending on how your heart beats and alpha and beta brainwaves activated, the tail moves from side-to-side and top-to-bottom at various intensities.
When relaxed, the tail moves softly and slowly; when concentrating, it moves hard and fast; when happy, it wags vigorously; and when upset, it droops.
Shippo also is connects to a mobile app to record your mood and location on a map—so your social network what you’re feeling and where.
Currently, Shippo is not available on the market.
