Necomimi is a brainwave headset with ears that move according to the user’s neuroscience patterns and emotions in real time. A sensor placed on the wearer’s forehead monitors brainwave patterns and the ears move in cat-like reactive movements. The ears perk up when the user is alert, droop down to show relaxation and wiggle back and forth when the user is “in the zone.”

Necomimi first became popular within the anime and costume communities in Japan because of a viral YouTube video by Neurowear, a fashion electronics company and finally made its U.S. debut in July during Comic Con 2012.

NYCC 2012:New York Comic-Con’s Minimates Tenth Anniversary Exhibit a Big Hit

Minimates celebrated their 10th birthday with a bang, as over 100,000 fans attended this past weekend’s New York Comic-Con, where the Minimates-related festivities were in full swing! An art exhibit, panel and two signings drew thousands of attendees, from die-hard Minimate fanatics to casual enthusiasts, and thousands of Minimates, pins and posters were given out over the course of the weekend. Manufacturer Diamond Select Toys also gave fans a glimpse at the future of the line!

Located on the lower level at the Jacob Javits Center, the Minimates 10th Anniversary Exhibit had over 400 Minimates on display — not even a third of the over 1400 Minimates that have been released over the years. Marvel and DC Comics characters were displayed alongside Minimates from <em>Star Trek</em>, <em>The Walking Dead, Ghostbusters</em> and <em>The Munsters</em>, and the walls were hung with original concept art, as well as promotional posters from movie-based Minimates lines like <em>Back to the Future</em> and <em>A Fistful of Dollars</em>.

The artists behind most of those posters, Minimates designers Uriel Caton and Barry Bradfield, were at the exhibit on Sunday to sign 500 Universal Monsters Minimates posters for exhibit attendees. They were also joined by Minimates product manager Robert Yee for a panel presentation on Minimates, during which they revealed the control art for next year’s 50th series of Marvel figures. The line-up for that series was voted on by over 10,000 visitors, and the release will coincide with the Marvel Minimates line’s 10th anniversary.!
