Neurowear unveiled a new type of headphones named ‘Mico‘ at SXSW. They headphones play music based on your mood, and select songs from a database to complement how you are feeling. Mico connects to your iPhone through Bluetooth and picks songs that have been “neuro-tagged” using a special music app.
Why I’m Curious: This is a new take on music discovery that takes away some of the hassle from users (no need to pick your favorite artists/genres). While Mico can’t compete with the elaborate database of a Pandora or Spotify, I do think that sorting content by emotion is something that can apply to many fields — from food/recipes to shoes.
