College students, let’s incontinence experience!
—Nursing & medical care “Super-VR Attraction” at the “Nico Nico Super Conference 2016″—
KAI-YOU.net | 2016.04.29 (Google Translate)
… We asked Nyan Shibata, currently in her fourth year of university, to have a VR (virtual realty) incontinence experience…
At the moment air is fed in, it reproduces the state of incontinence state with subtle warmth and feeling of pressure.
“Wow, oh, oh!” Miss Shibata’s to voice and facial expression indescribably changed as they started the incontinence device.
“Actually it was like taking a leak—Rather than discomfort, embarrassment has won,” she said, a little dazed.
…the “Incontinence Study Group” wants to this “incontinence experience” to help in training for nursing and medical fields…The group is not part any laboratory of the University of Electro-Communications. It’s only a club activity and has not applied yet for corporate support for further research.

Bio-terror explodes in Japan! (the start of pollen season)

Q: What happens when you mistake “Pollen Guard EX” allergy cream for Japanese SuperGlue®?

A: Strong, fast-acting, Cyanoacrylate adhesive sure does a hell of a better job than wimpy anti-pollen nasal cream.

Here’s couple of dubious Japanese products: anti-pollen cream and soap…

We offer “Pollen Guard EX” anti-pollen cream and “Muse” medical soap in order to meet the changing customers’ demands by utilizing our advanced development capabilities and technologies.

Cthulhu Christmas?

A giant squid was seen just paddling around Toyama Bay in a marina on the morning of 24th. It’s rare that living giant squid to be seen so close the shore and on the surface. The length of the giant was about 4m and its girth was about 1m.

Tailfins on your tires! Newest zoom-go-fast innovation from Japan

The newest innovation from Yokohama Rubber is putting fins on your tire sidewalls. Yokohama Rubber Company has tweaked their tires with fins built into the sidewalls to cut a vehicle’s aerodynamic drag and lift.

Compared to conventional tires (L), new advances (R) reduce vehicle aerodynamic drag and lift—-
fins-on-rubber-tire Press Release | 2015.Oct.15 : Yokohama Rubber Advancing Tire Aerodynamics Tech

 

According to Yokohama Rubber’s announcement (2015.Oct.15), the new development reduces vehicle aerodynamic drag and lift resulting in increased fuel efficiency and vehicle safety.

Following its successful research on rolling resistance, Yokohama Rubber first found in 2012 that placing fin-shaped protuberances on the inner sidewall of the tire in a radial or spoke-like pattern to reduce the aerodynamic drag inside the wheel wells. This latest development controls aerodynamic flow throughout the vehicle body by using a new fin shape and placement technique that places the fin protuberances at angles near the tire’s shoulder on the tire’s outer sidewall help to reduce vehicle aerodynamic drag when on the upper part of the tire during its rotation while suppressing vehicle aerodynamic lift when on the lower part of the tire.

Shibuya flushes away stained reputation of having filthy toilets
Asahi News Sept. 26, 2015
once derided a restroom in the young people’s fashion district of Harajuku as “the world’s dirtiest,” today it has been cleaned up and transformed into the “Sushi Ninja Toilet.”
The once-filthy toilet was “adopted” by Genco Inc., an anime production companyand its Sushi Ninja character is now plastered on the exteriormore

WELCOME TO OUR ROBOT OVERLORDS … (not)

robot-overlord-verified
reddit-japan-logo
Question posed on reddit:

I was wondering automation and its effects on the workforce. Given that Hitachi has now introduced the first AI managers. Will automation change “employment” as we know it in the coming years?
 

My answer:
┏[-_-]┛ WELCOME TO OUR ROBOT OVERLORDS ┗[-_-]┓(not)

The AI [artificial intelligence] of those “AI managers” does not mean they are bosses. The so-called “AI managers” are just software schedulers of logistics tasks using some AI. All major shipping companies have been using such software for years—the same for taxi companies, auto parts warehouses, and gambling casino management.

According to Hitachi’s press release (2015-09-15), the company is just trying to smooth out allocation production resources using better scheduling and prediction of factory job orders. These are not robot “managers” bossing humans around—just fancy computer calendars tied into Excel spreadsheets, <yawn>.

By integrating artificial intelligence technology into Hitachi’s automation for logistics tasks, they were able to verify an 8% improvement in efficiency. Cool! However, that’s what Amazon.com, UPS, Walmart, and every supermarket chain has been doing for the past 20 years.

The key point is that Hitachi’s AI technology is trying predict glitches in their production and figure out whether improvements/keizen actually work together to boast production. For example, a 200% improvement in the Widget bolt tightening also must have a 200% improvement in the Widget locking washer placement and picking/fitting of bolts before they’re tightened.

Bottom line: Move along folks—Nothing to see here, yet.
