Well that's the case of the new advertising campaign for  Toyota´s Corolla 11, featuring the Japanese Virtual Idol Hatsune Miku

Brain-controled Ears

Technology is amazing, it can take us to the space, or the deepest of the, watch new or event that are happening at the other side of the world, and even "rebuild" our body when they are hurt. But it is even more amazing when we find a way to use for our own hobbies or entertainment, and that is what this new ears do.

This are the "Necomimi" vol 1. developed by Neurowear, and as u can see the concept is simple, a pair necomimi (Cat ears in Japanese) attached to a sensor the read the brain waves and move the ears depending on your mood, just like the real cat ears would do.

Blue Exorcist

Opening Theme: "Core Pride" by UVERworld  --> Release Date: 2011/05/11

Title: Ao no Exorcist/Ao no Futsumashi (青の祓魔師(エクソシスト)) 
Episodes: 24
Producers: A-1 Pictures
Genre: Action/ Fantasy/ Comedy/ Shonen/ Supernatural/ Drama
Rating: +17 <---REALLY o.O?

It's hard to say if a series can really be called "best", but there is a title that Ao No Ex has already called an "Attention Whore". Promos during Madoka. advertising in every single (legal) simulcast on the web, and the english release of the manga's 1st volume, make Blue Exorcist the most hyped series of the season, but was it all worth it?
