Necomimi Brainwave Cat Ears – $100
I first saw these at NYCC and was pretty impressed. You wear them on your head and the ears move based on your emotions (brain waves). They also have different ear covers so you can mix and match based on your style.
Here are a few of my top picks, covering both the Apple and the Android fanboys. In my opinion though, the two Nexus contenders best their Apple counterparts in both specs and price.

iPad With Retina Display – $499 and up

MOGA Android Game Controller – $45
The MOGA Android Game controller is just that: a bluetooth gamepad for your Android device. The benefit of this controller though is that MOGA provides an app that collects all games that work well with the controller. Other controllers are hit-or-miss when it comes to compatibility.
