Two Emotional Tech Products That Will Catch You In The Mood
Two products caught my Nerd Stalker eye this week. I am not sure this is a tech trend but worth mentioning. Two emotion-based products were mentioned in the news. One from our friends at Gizmodo about mood-catching robotic cat ears from Neuroware and the another from our friends at evolver.fm which features an app where music is sorted/tagged/shared by mood from Stereomood.
Is Your Partner Really Excited to See You?

The Neccomimi (ネコのミミ） ears—an animatronic headband controlled through the power of your mind—that we first covered last year are finally coming to America! Designed and built by Neurowear, a Japanese fashion electronics company, the ears respond to their wearers emotions, perking up and flopping over depend on your mood. They will retail for $100 and be available at Comicon and through the Neurowear website. These are obviously quite awesome but what I want to know is, would you wear them? You know—in public?
