June 29, 2012 – San Jose, CA/ San Diego, CA, USA– Leading biosensor company NeuroSky launches the YouTube sensation, Necomimi, in the US at Comic-Con in the San Diego Convention Center.

A concept born in Japan by Neurowear, a fashion electronics company, Necomimi’s popularity skyrocketed within the anime and costume communities. Now general audiences are clamoring for the fascinating brainwave cat ears that respond to the wearer’s mood.

Necomimiis a headband with cat ears that move according to the user’s feelings and emotions in real time. Necomimi, powered by NeuroSky’s ThinkGear technology, gives people a chance to express their moods in a real-time, unique way.

Three emotional states create cat-like reactive movements that show how interested or relaxed the wearer is. When something catches the user’s attention, the ears shoot straight up. When the wearer is relaxed, the ears droop down. When both highly focused and highly relaxed –or “in the zone” — the ears will wiggle back and forth.

Necomimi is great for parties, tailgating at your favorite sporting event, bachelorette parties, cosplay and anytime you want to entertain your friends and family. Don’t take our word for it, find out yourself why everyone is saying, “Make my ears wiggle!”

Necomimi is priced at $99.95 and will be available for sale at Comic-Con from booth 305, or through select authorized resellers, retail partners and on necomimi.com.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
