Hello Kitty Chainsaw

Because surely there must be lumberjacks and psycho-killers out there who might prefer to dress in pink, right?

This is just wrong. A Hello Kitty Chainsaw. I wonder what other kind of tools could look this bad in Hello Kitty pink… A Hello Kitty Jack Hammer perhaps? Maybe a set of needle-nose pliers? What do you think?

Any female construction workers out there who would go for this sort of thing? Read the rest of this entry »

Wasabi Smoke Alarm

Do you have trouble waking up to the noise of a ringing alarm clock? If you don’t immediately wake up to the sound of an alarm, you might want to consider investing in one of these new smoke alarms in Japan.

Rather than trying to wake the residents of a house with sound, this smoke alarm instead sends the strong smell of wasabi throughout the area. Early tests of the device show that most people wake up within one to two minutes, which is a fairly impressive (and somewhat unexpected) result for a silent alarm. Read the rest of this entry »

Forget Apple’s Tablet. NEC to launch Android tablet early 2010

We’ve all been waiting patiently for Apple’s mysterious tablet (or iSlate, depending on what you want to call it). While it’s uncertain exactly when in the next year that product will launch, rumor has it that Jobs is extremely pleased with the result. So while we’re all waiting for that bombshell to drop, there are a few other tablet PCs to occupy our time with.

The latest is this new Android tablet from NEC, which is said to launch in Japan early in the new year. Admittedly it does look pretty slick, although there ain’t no way that it’s going to shine like Apple’s tablet. Read the rest of this entry »

Vibrating pillow is sure to please

Vibrating pillows and chairs are not especially new ideas. But I did get a kick out of this news story showing an anchorwoman testing one out. Maybe she should have sent a man out on this report, because the vibrating pillow obviously has her a little flustered.

Check out the video: Read the rest of this entry »

FAIL: Windows 7 Demo on Japanese TV goes awry

This is hilarious.

Admittedly Windows 7 will be a huge improvement over its predecessors, and likely doesn’t need to be marketed that much. But it’s always funny to see demonstrations like this go bad, no matter who owns the software. Check out the following host as he tries to show off Windows 7’s touch screen features. (Note: It’s in Japanese, but requires no translation) Read the rest of this entry »

Hi-Tech Graveyards are cheaper, more compact

Everyone has heard about Japan’s famously aging population. Naturally it stands to reason that besides health care for seniors, another industry (if you can call it an industry) that will be doing quite well will be burial and cremation services.

One company in Japan has developed a more compact and cheaper alternative to a traditional Japanese graveyard. A warehouse-type building stores remains in much smaller rectangular metal boxes, which are then shelved for posterity. Read the rest of this entry »
