Happiness Hat – The hat that can make you smile, or else…

Yes, they actually created a hat that can make you smile. How does it work? If you don’t smile, you get stabbed in the back of your head, tjongolongo…

Okay, I may be exaggerating a bit, but still, it’s a hat that pokes you in the back of your head when you stop smiling. Or as it’s described on the site of the maker, Lauren Mccarthy: “A wearable conditioning device that detects if you’re smiling and provides pain feedback if you’re not. Frowning creates intense pain but a full smile leaves you pain free!”

So, it may look like a nice warm woolly hat for the winter, but trust me, it’s not that innocent. Just check out the video to see the hat in action.

From what I can gather the hat is made to improve social inter-acting and a smile makes people feel happier. I’m not so sure how happy I’ll be if I was being poked all the time by my hat though…

I would love to see a designer be bold and use this hat for its next show. I would absolutely love to see models wearing a hat like this on the catwalk! Would make for some great publicity, models that smile!

Would you buy a Happiness Hat? Or what would you rather use to make yourself smile all day?
