Smart Wig is basically a mobile computer. It could fulfill a number of functions from acting as a health care device that monitors users’ vital signs (including blood pressure, temperature and heart-rate) to “navigation wig” to assist the visually impaired in finding their way around.

The users can get direction from the device while walking. The device will send a small buzz to the left side of the head or right side of the head.

For corporate buyers, this wig could be used to control presentations in the boardroom with wearers able to move to the next presentation slide or back to the preceding presentation slide by simply raising their eyebrows.

The Japanese firm has not yet decided on the date of its commercial launch.
