Japanese Culture:
A Global Creature

The disproportional influence Japanese culture has on the other 98% of humanity, with no exaggeration or hyperbole, is truly profound. And, of course, that influence has a pretty decent foothold in Western Europe, which brings us once again to...

More about the Contributor:
We first encountered Jeremy's Tokyo-based YouTubing in early 2014, and as he progressed, we became more and more interested in and appreciative of his quirky, funny, dare we say ‘French’ perspective (yeah, we dare). Jeremy has now returned to France where he continues reporting on Japanese culture. 
In his own words:

What I personally like about the Yurikamome is that, because you are gliding above the ground and between buildings on a winding track, it feels as though you’re traveling through the city aboard some kind of hover car.

From upscale shopping centers to out of the way local grocery stores and business of all sorts (even a few private homes here and there), Tokyo is currently enjoying a very tasteful veneer of light-based holiday spirit. Whether we call them Christmas Lights, Holiday Decorations, or simply, as do the Japanese, Illumination, there’s no doubt that Japan both loves to play the game and is particularly good at it.

Tokyo Tilt-Shift Timelapse Pastel Diorama Part 3: Night & Day (VIDEO)
Those who’ve browsed around our video collection know that we’ve long been enamored with the work of mysterious Tokyo photographer darwinfish105. This latest effort, one we’re putting in the Tokyo Pastel Diorama Series, once again makes the world’s largest city look quaint and cute in one composition, vast and ominous in another.

At Keio University, the Takahashi Laboratory, in the Department of System Design Engineering (Faculty of Science and Technology) is doing research to develop products and systems that are useful to society, through an approach called model-based control.

Sanwa Supply started selling a mobile digital microscope and camera (400-CAM010N), which is able to focus on an object with a maximum 500X zoom, for ¥11,800.

400-CAM010N looks like a normal compact digital camera at first sight, but it can take super detailed photos of fine details, such as that of material fibers, that a regular digital camera cannot do. Not just a tool for micro observation, for those who have poor eyesight, it can be used as a magnifier while they read small characters.

Seavac has been researching the conventional coating technologies using TiN, Ti-Al, and CrN, and developed ZERO-I, a new coating that combines the advantages of all three.

"The hardness is about 3,500 HV. This coating is heat-resistant to over 1,000 degrees. Conventional Ti-Al coatings were heat-resistant to nearly 900 degrees, but this coating has even better heat resistance, and hardness as well."
