Got Your Ears On?

OK, this is wacky.   It’s off the wall.  And it will probably never make a dime.  BUT … it’s too silly not to show.   The fledgling, under-funded EMOKI has introduced playful ears you can wear and move with your thoughts.  Um, yeah.    So strap on your bunny ears or the kittycat version and go all Bewitched on everyone (yes, I know that Amanda wiggled her nose).  

But here’s the thing–controlling things with your brain is absolutely the future.  And you need some stuff like this–the simplest application–to push the technology forward.

Naturally, there’s problems with this product.  It’s not nearly as visually arresting as it should be because we assume the ears are battery powered.   And if you have to explain, well, that takes the fun out of it.  On the other hand, I can just imaging the mixer where everyone is given a pair and you look for someone who can’t stop wiggling at you!

See them in action!
