Internet addiction continues to rise in Japan

hikikomori geek
Japanese experts are blaming the the increasing quality of digital content and the plague of smartphone/keitai zombies (3Yen 2014-07-06) for the continuing increase of Net addicts, who often prefer the Internet over other essential activities such as sleeping (or sex).

Internet addiction rising in Japan
NHK WORLD Oct. 15, 2014
A panel of experts in Japan says more than 4.2 million people in the country are addicted to the internet…addiction is up 50 percent from the last survey 6 years ago.
Addiction is suspected when people neglect their work or household chores as a result of spending too much time online.

Solution?
The Japanese government needs a crash program to provide all Internet junkies with the “iFeel_IM” — the “Virtual Hugging Vest” has been created at Toyohashi University of Technology.
As shown below, the “iFeel_IM” can simulate the feel of a hug or shrug using the tight vest and electronic sensors and vibrotactile actuators. The iFeel_IM’s website describes that the vest can provide hikomori/socially-isolated geek with: “The quickened thump of an angry heart beat, a spine-tingling chill of fear, or that warm-all-over sensation sparked by true love — all can be felt even as your eyes stay glued to a computer screen.”
iFeel_IM Affective Haptics in Emotional Communication..

For more about this perfect solution, refer to the previous report on the 3Yen (2010-04-10): sad iFeel_IM

Funny phobia — weirdo weenie worries of the Japanese

One of the strangest Japanese neurosis is “Phimosis“—non-retracting or tight foreskin. Phimosis phobia cuts across all of society. Every Japanese mens magazine and manga has advertisements for phimosis treatments. New Japanese mothers are instructed on how to repeatedly “retract” the foreskin of their young boys* so they will not suffer the horrors genital binding and phimosis-induced insanity, ha, ha.

Foreskin clip joints take unwary males for a ride
Japan Today /2014Sep19
More males in Japan are undergoing esthetic surgical procedures to improve their appearance or boost their self esteem…{Japanese males} turned to legal help after undergoing {unneeded adult} circumcisions.
Only in a small number of cases are circumcisions necessary for medical reasons, and such individuals can make use of their national health insurance to have the procedure done inexpensively. But rather than provide such explanations, unethical dealers in the foreskin removal trade might tell them, “Your circulation is being constricted” or “There’s a chance you’ll develop cancer”

Every Japanese’s dream: Sleep, glorious SLEEP!

When you talking with a Japanese person for the first time, the standard conversational gambit is for you to be asked, “What is your hobby?” (Shumi wa nan desu ka? shumi wa nan desu ka?)
A good, standard conversational answer that many Japanese salarymen say is, “Sleep.”

China had the most–more than nine hours of sleep.
Japan had the least–less than seven hours and 15 minutes of sleep.

A fair shake … Japan style

akb48 handshake event

Late last May, two members of the megapopular idol group “AKB48″ had to be hospitalized after they were attacked by a crazed fan wielding with a saw during the group’s meet ’n' greet. Since then there has been much angst about how to safely hold akushukai / “handshaking” events.

Many ideas have been suggested (3Yen / 2014-05-26 ), but the following was the most “Japanese” solution.

handshake-robot

Translation: This new video conference system that can shake hands was created by a research group of the University of Osaka. The system allows you to remotely shake hands with a distant person by tele-connecting them using a robot pseudo-hand during an online conversation.

Mission accomplished! icon_thumbsup
