CES 2013: Engadget’s Daniel Orren controls cat ears with his mind

This is how it starts. First you control cat ears with your brain and the next thing you know the robots rise up, right? Well probably not. Down here at CES, we saw the Necomimi brain-controlled cat ears and we were a little too afraid to go up and try them. Engadget’s team were a little more bold and scored a video of the ears in action.

It looks like they really only pick up the most primitive form of electrical energy from your mind — no need to worry (yet) that the robot overlords working away in that abandoned underground nuclear test site are collecting your mental energy.
