Neurowear, the folks behind those brain-controlled necomimi cat ears, showcased their new "Shippo (tail)" at Tokyo Game Show. And, for those who couldn't make it to the event, there's a new YouTube concept movie. The tails swish at a speed determined by the wearer's mood from slow relaxed to fast concentrated, and it integrates with a smartphone app that location maps those emotions.

Already have one between my legs, no need for a tail. No need for smartphone integration! BTW, the chick is a 7 on the fucko-meter.

Yes, we need these, because faces do such a terrible job of conveying emotion. :roll:

The Japanese are great at manufacturing, but they need to outsource their marketing functions.

Because of 建前 (tatemae), this technology exists. I'll gladly take robotic tail-wearing weirdos over sagging-pants wearing fools.

When the frisbee fell by her feet, did anyone else think this going to go in an (even more) awkward direction?

'share your mood socially' is a concept straight out of my worst dreams.

Well, not exactly mine... but humanities. Fear the day I impose my mood on you, sheeple!

Back to serious: this is fucked up beyond believe.
