Mico from Neurowear analyses brainwaves

plays music that fits your mood



The always creative Neurowear company, creator of the overly successful

 brain-controlled Necomimi cat ears and the wearable tail accessory Shippo,

has announced its newest invention, Mico, a system consisting of a pair of

headphones, a brainwave sensor and an iOS app, aiming to free users from

having to manually select songs ever again.


Mico -short for Music Inspiration from your Subconsciousness- is made up

of two parts: the headphones with a sensor and an iPhone application. The

headphones read the user’s brain signals and determines whether the person

is focused, drowsy or stressed.

The device sends this information to the iPhone app which searches for and

plays music that matches the user’s mood. As a unique touch, LED signs on the

side of the headphones light up, which also lets people know just what kind of

state the user is in. Neurowear recently revealed Zen Tunes, an application that

analyses a user’s brainwaves when listening to music and then produces a

recommended playlist based on their state of mind. Mico, takes this idea a step

further. According to Neurowear, “Mico frees the user from having to select songs

and artists and allows users to encounter new music just by wearing the device.

The device detects brainwaves through the sensor on your forehead. Our app then

automatically plays music that fits your mood.”


Release date or price not known at this point but Neurowear will demonstrate the
device for the first time at the SXSW Trade Show in Austin, Texas from March 8-13.
