Story 311 is a manga project created in order to hand the history of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami to the next generation by telling the story through manga. It was launched by manga artist Satoru Hiura, who is well-known as the author of Hotaru no Hikari.
For the project, manga artists actually took trips to the damaged area, interviewed local people, and gathered information there by themselves, and then they drew stories based on what they researched. 13 other manga artists agreed with Satoru's idea and participated in the project.
2 new models of USB adapter were released by Sanwa Supply. Both are ¥5,800.
They are compatible with TransferJet technology (Close proximity wireless transfer technology), which instantly enables them to send/receive data to/from another device just by putting the device above them.
In these adapters, Sony's ultra-fast LSI is built-in so they are capable of sending 50MB data to other devices in about 5 seconds. In addition to that, using close proximity wireless transfer technology lessens the possibility of data leakage.
