Ever wish you could telegraph your feelings as easily as Mr. Bigglesworth? Well, now you can, with these furrific NecoMimi brainwave-controlled cat ears!
Spot a gorgeous guy whose skin is too good to be true or a hot babe in a goth kimono? The ears perk up! Zoning out during Japanese class, while watching the math channel, or on a blind date with a girl in a giant doll costume? The ears droop. Wondering whether to go out for a nice bowl of intestine soup or order in a fish egg mayo & potato pizza? The ears wiggle!
Electrodes on your forehead and ear detect the brainwaves connected with your emotions and the ears move according to your mood. Originally they only came in white, but now you can rock them in brown, black or leopard spots, as well as switching out the ears for a wicked pair of devil horns!
Read a novel set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
