I received an email from this company to check out their new technology. The great thing about this is that you can use them for many types of costumes and they move! Now, for any of you who cosplay, you will know that it is extremely difficult to easily make ears move or tails wag. I mean, there are ways to do it, but not very well. This device takes the guessing of how to make your ears move!
The concept came from Tokyo and then were made in Silicon Valley. I actually got to meet two of the designers and they walked me through what the movements mean. Here is a breakdown of what those are:
- Ears move up and down: The wearer is focused or relaxed.
- Ears straight up and wiggling: The wearer is very interested!
- Ears just shoot straight up: The wearer is very focused.
- Ears slowly droop down: The wearer is very relaxed.

Here are some photos from the con. Enjoy!
