Some floor cleaning robots featured bizarrely on the red carpet of the 20th Tokyo International Film Festival’s opening ceremony…
An interesting Japanese video from Nikon for their 90th anniversary celebration. The video shares some development of their camera technology, as well as some nice photos and clips.
Making sushi has never been so easy… Japanese toy manufacturer Bandai Namco has introduced an automatic sushi roller. The roller is meant to be a toy for 6-12 years old girls, but I guess it serves no harm for people who are looking for a fast sushi snack.
A unique, cool but non practical watch… the LED’s in Geomesh light up in various patterns to tell the time, with the horizontal and vertical lights to indicate hours & minutes.
The price of the watch is ¥13,900 (~ USD121). I don’t think I would want to go through the headache just to read the time though.
A moving alarm clock on wheels that rolls around the room beeping and hides so users have to get up and turn it off has proved a hit in Japan following its introduction.
The unique clock, named “Nanda Clocky” in Japan, was designed three years ago by 27-year-old Gauri Nanda, who was studying at a university in the United States at the time. Nanda, who reportedly struggled to wake up in the morning herself, formed a company and launched the product earlier this year.
Commenting on the clock’s popularity, Nanda said the interest suggested there were a lot of people who were stopping their alarms and drifting back to sleep.
