Sadly, these nursing care robots of the RIKEN Institute have been around forever. RIBA-II, the care-giving Teddy Bear (3Yen.com / 2011-08-03) shown above has been in development for a long time without any the bear-bots going into practical use in nursing homes and hospitals.

The 3Yen first reported years ago about the predecessor of the RIBA, the RI-MAN robot in: Stroke my soft machine (3Yen / 2006-03-01)

Get naked with 10,000 of your closest Japanese buddies!

It’s that time of the year again
…For the Hadaka Matsuri aka Naked Festival (3Yen 2012-02-20) at Saidaiji Temple in Okayama, where you can tussle with 10,000 nearly naked drunk men in fundoshi/loincloths to touch the delegated naked holy man(correction) who almost always needs to be hospitalized after the crush.

Japanese ‘free’ beer can be marketed as a health food

3Yen readers Mulboyne and “Choko” write:

Just when you thought Coke had the monopoly on ‘Wild Health’ (3Yen 2011-02-06)

kirin-free
left_quoter_14x24Breaking remarkable new ground, Japan’s Consumer Agency has ruled non-alcohol beer can be labelled a health food.right_quoter_13x24yomiuri-text
___________
Japan’s largest newspaper, the Yomiuri Shimbun (right), reports that the courts found that the promotion of non-alcohol beer did not contribute to underage drinking. The official ruling said that breweries could label the so-called “free” beer (above left) as a help in maintaining and improving health in accordance with Japan’s Health Promotion Law. R-i-i-ight.

Japan’s All-seeing Eye of the Illuminati has made its triumphant return to Tokyo after being winked out by the Fukushima Nuclear Power Pant Meltdown of 2011*.

The Eye of Shinjuku is back up again. Anyone with a paranoia complex might want to steer clear.
The art installation, dating back to 1970, was turned off as a power conservation measure following the Great Quake of 2011. It was back on last week.
