    Sony obviously wants to measure the amount of sweat and fat the human head produces while playing games.

    Erm...how does this thing help navigate roads? Well...other than making you look like a cheap hooker so you'll catch a ride faster, that is.

    Changing slides, eh? Yeah...it'll look really professional when you pat your own head each time you want the next slide to show up.

    And blood pressure...erm...not that it's useless in some practices, but why the hell would you want a wig for that?
    They're preparing for a change of the company name. In a year from now, the entire brand will be renamed as Girly.

    I assume you change them with your brain. Like those Neurowear cat ears, only without the ears.

    I've heard hair-raising announcements, but a hair-replacing one? Preposterous!

    They are probably patenting the whole range of head-mounted gadgetry, and wigs are just part of the gamut they covered just in case.

    At least I very very much hope that is the case, and that their flagship product won't really be a wig made out of yak hair, regardless of its functionality.


    "SmarToupe, for the executive on the go!"

    Let's be frank here, you'd have to be blind to a wear a wig like these anyway.
