Need a pair of cat ears that twitch and move based on your mood? Probably not. But just in case, MakerBot Operator Josh DiMauro has made a prototype of mechanical feline appendages you can wear using a MakerBot Cupcake and some other pieces. You can read more about the project along with general instructions for making it on Thingiverse.com.
So what motivated DiMauro to make the ears? Not surprisingly, he says it started with a request from a friend during a night of drinking. Then again, cat ears are apparently popular over in Japan, so it’s not like it was a totally random idea. In any case, if this unique prop ever catches on in America, expect Halloween to get a lot livelier in the years to come.
