    Ok, it seems like we’re really nearing a point where mechanical objects can replicate human movements more precisely and much faster than humans.  This is a video demonstration of a highly dexterous robotic hand performing some simple tasks but at really high speeds. Read more…

  • Gundam trash
    This is a bit of a sad story.  Apparently the mother of a 29 year old man living in Japan (Kasai City) threw away his prized Gundam collection without his knowledge.  When he got home and couldn’t find his robot army he apparently lost it, poured kerosene in his room and set it on fire.

    It was an attempt at suicide which he couldn’t carry through since he and his 55 year old mother survived.  The house wasn’t so lucky. It burned to the ground.

    I was walking through my Best Buy when I saw this on shelf.  So is this supposed to protect me from some kinda virus from Cobra?  Will it protect me against other non-Cobra related threats?  What if I like Cobra?  But really, I’m not sure slapping on a piece of current pop culture hotness is the way to go about conveying how serious you are about blocking malicious viruses. Seems silly… Norton must be silly.

    I’m sure most have heard of the life sized Gundam that was erected in Tokyo, but did you know it could be used as a giant karaoke machine?  Seriously, it puts on a laser light show and everything!

    It’s also part of a project to raise funds for the city of Tokyo to rehabilitate some of the common green areas of the city in time for the 2016 Olympics.  Only the Japanese would prepare for an event that’s still seven years away and do it the only way they know how- by building robots.

    Welcome to my first posting!  I just want to welcome anyone here that’s interested in anime or certain facets of the Japanese culture, such as sushi and anything with Sony stamped on it.  I’ve been an avid watcher of anime since I was oh, really young.  Young enough to wake up at 6am in Vancouver Canada and sneak downstairs, fire up the old Zenith TV and watch Starblazers.  It was glorious. People died in it. No one died in Carebears… it was a bit of a shocker, and I was hooked.
