Robo-Geisha is one crazy movie +

Bit NSFW. Well, I’ve never been one to shy away from crazy Japanese cult movies. As a matter of fact, I didn’t think I would find one that topped Tokyo Gore Police. Silly me. Leave it to the minds that created Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police to team up and create this over the […]

A 3 foot horror story +

The bathroom in many homes is a very lonely room. You only visit it when you need something, and not for the pleasant atmosphere the room provides. So is it really hard to believe that the lonely bathrooms around the world holds a deep seated grudge for the humans that use it? I think not. […]

A real Hello Kitty +

If you are reading this website right now, I would find it very hard for you to not know what Hello Kitty is. One could argue that it is one of the most well known Japanese brands right up there with Honda and Sony. This video has nothing to do with Hello Kitty other than […]

Kids vs Zombies +

So, Andrea subliminally tricked me into purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam, and I have been enjoying playing it for the past few days now. Funnily enough, I have to play Louis everytime I play online because well… my real name is Louis and I’m African-American. You may be wondering what zombies have to do […]

Ichi the Killer Bento +

Gore movies are one of my many favorites from Japan. The last one I watched was Tokyo Gore Police a few months ago. What can I say about that besides it was unbelievably gory… As for the actual story, I think I could of written something better as weekend homework in the 4th grade. But […]

Naoto Fukasawa’s Fruit Juice +

They say that the way food or drinks look plays a major influence on how well we like it. I would have to agree. These are some awesome fruit juice packaging from Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Looking at the strawberry box, it looks as if the packaging may even feel like the specific fruit it […]

Mini Nikon SLR in Japanese candy +

Gilco is one of Japan’s oldest candy companies, and is home to the popular Glico caramel candy as well as the legendary Pocky. For about 80 years now, inside the Glico caramel candy boxes there is a small toy called “Omake of Glico” (Small gift of Glico). It started off as little toys kids would […]

Space Invaders Bank +

Tomy has done it again. If you are old enough to remember space invaders, this functioning bank will trigger your nostalgia reflex. Personally I remember the game, but I’m too young to remember the actual table. We did have a functioning Atari when I was a child though. Ah. Memories.

Get the perfect picture of your pets +

Bow Cam from AppliyaEarlier today I was on Ameba Vision looking at sophie-chan. I really do want a dog. They seem like they are such fun companions. Owners are always taking videos and photos, but you have to wonder, do cats and dogs know to look at the camera when its time for the photo?

A creative startup in Tokyo, Appliya INC, has found a pretty creative yet simple way to solve the problem of bad pet photos. They have created 2 IPhone apps called Meow Cam and Bow Cam.

The Meow Cam and Bow Cam are applications that significantly increase the chance of capturing fantastic shots of cats that don’t want to look into the camera, or dogs that keep running around everywhere.

When you press the MEOW (or BOW) button, your iPhone will emit meowing and barking sounds that will make your pet look in your direction. That’s your perfect photo op! The application includes 10 different sounds such as various meows/bows, as well as other noises (plastic bags rustling, the sound of opening a tin can etc). Experiment with different sound effects by changing the sound setting from the settings screen. 

Perfect example of how the simplist ideas are usually the best ideas. They hope to sell 30,000 downloads of each application, and for only .99, I don’t think they will have a problem at all. Click here to checkout Bow Cam and Meow Cam on iTunes! Don’t have a pet? Don’t worry. Appliya also makes an iPhone app for your baby.
