The 'SmartWig' that directs wearers with GPS

If you are bald and lost - then the 'SmartWig' could be just the thing for you.

The high-tech hairpiece, which has just been patented by Sony, can apparently read the wearer's brainwaves and direct them to their destination with onboard GPS. But could it really catch on?

A Sony spokesperson told the BBC that the firm had not yet decided on any plans for commercial production of the SmartWig.
