World’s lightest luxury glasses type terminal
Osaka software maker, Westunitis Company, plans to release in July its inforod—the “world’s lightest” wearable computer eyeglasses that weighs only 48 grams. The inforod works as a computer micro-terminal with a tiny built-in screen that can guide users in the proper usage of equipment and help with detailed procedures. It could reduce the risk of incorrectly performing complex industrial work and to help with healthcare procedures. Part of the frames of the eyeglasses functions like in the PC mouse, which you can touch to make a selection. The price is expected to be 135,000 yen or about $1,316 USD.

I’d hate to pop this Japanese official’s cherry…

Can’t help feeling there might be better ways for Yamagata’s deputy governor to promote his region’s cherries. pic.twitter.com/xVq6dOSVDv

Yamagata’s deputy governor must be a relative of former Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshio Sakaurauchi who famously introduced himself to the Washington press corps by saying, “My name is Cherry.

The mighty Japanese Navy protects with a what?

With a measure of whimsey, “Elizabeth“—the Phalanx gun system of the JDS Kirishima (DDG-174)(Wiki) protected the Saturday Open House at Yokusuka Naval Base in Tokyo Bay.
The Kirishima was one of five Kongo-class guided missile destroyers of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) gathered at Yokusuka in preparation for a crucial mission… Yokusuka-base Elizabeth

That “crucial mission” was Saturday’s navy curry contest.

MSDF armada masses; first order is curry contest
The Japan Times | April 18, 2014
One key mission of a group of 15 Maritime Self-Defense Force warships, including four of the nation’s six state-of-the-art Aegis destroyers…gather Saturday at the MSDF base in Yokosuka …[for]… a curry-cooking contest.
More…

Elizabeth” is of course much more than just a Phalanx gun of a Close-In Weapons System (CIWS).
From the popular manga and anime series “Gintama” (Wiki), Elizabeth is the alien companion “animal” of Katsura, the hero of the series. Elizabeth is actually a general of:
quoter leftThe Renho race of mercenaries that specialize in covert operations, and who act as pets for numerous Earthlings in order to prepare Earth for an invasion (gintama.wikia.com).quoter right

Because of its resemblance, the Japanese navy has decked out their Phalanx as “Elizabeth” in much the same way the US Navy has nicknamed it “R2D2″ and the Royal Navy calls it a “Dalek” after the alien villains of the “Doctor Who” TV show (reference).

Bag hag’s Boston Bag

Thinkbay®’s Cute Dog Handbag
, which they refer to by the more-than-a-mouthful term, said-openCrossbody Clutch Purse Shoulder Bag Cartoon Puppy Satchel,said-closed is quite remarkable.

More remarkable is the alien bag hag (urban dictionary) shown below modeling their Boston Bull (Wiki) bag.

Although Thinkbay®’s designs appeal to Japan tastes and their advertising features Japanese text, Thinkbay describes themselves as,
said-opena little team with five young guys who are full-time working on eBay,said-closed out of Hong Kong. Therefore the alien bag hag could just be an example of over-the-top Chinese plastic surgery.

Antonio Inoki died for our sins

Hey, it’s Good Friday — Antonio Inoki has gone on the Cross for your sins.

easter entrance on the cross Antonio-Inoki

The Easter-ish looking MMA–Mixed Martial Arts entrance is by Antonio Inoki, the first pro-wrestler in Japan to be elected to the Japanese parliament (3Yen 2005-07-11). Details are explained by the blog, Playing Ricky Morton
sidebar spacer-QUOTEr graphic

 
a New Year’s Eve MMA cards from Japan, Dream Genki Desu Ka… this was an evening of MMA.
After a worked match between Josh Barnett and Hideki Suzuki, Inoki was carried from the entrance ramp to the ring tied to a cross. Upon reaching the ring, he was let down from the cross and picked up a bucket of paint. Inoki begins to paint some Japanese symbol in the ring while cutting a promo simultaneously, possibly to mark another one of his retirements. This is interrupted by a run-in committee of guys in turbans who start beating Inoki down with kendo sticks, apologize, raise his hand in victory and then give him a kendo stick before leaving the ring peacefully.
