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├é┬ánostalgia├é┬áreflex. 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.

Japanese inventor creates needle-free injection +

Needle Free Injection

Were you one of the kids who were scared of needles? Are you still scared of them? Well inventor Yoshoi Oyama has developed a needle free injection which he has lovingly dubbed, “Mother’s Kiss”. The container uses air pressure in order to deliver the medicine. In poorer countries, where needles are sometimes reused and spread infection, Oyama’s creation would eliminate the risk. Once costs can be cut down making Mother’s Kiss a more economical alternative to traditional needles, we may see Oyama’s invention all over the world. National Geographic has a video of it in action.

    When I joined the Marines in ’89, they were using a similar method to inject all of us with vaccines. I developed a scar on my shoulder as a result. It started off as a small bump, now, 21 years later, it’s a long scar that stretches across my shoulder.

    Although I am deathly afraid of needles, and I find this a viable option, if offered instead, my biggest concern is about the medicine or vaccine being injected. I mean right now we think the medicines are safe, but what about the effect of future generations?
    All I have to say about modern medicines safety is Thalidomide. The whole thing happened in the 1960’s but still close enough that it has effected my life as a 25 year old. If you don’t know about Thalidomide, you should look it up. It is not only a sad thing, but I see it is a warning for the future. The articles are informative and interesting, as well as heart breaking.
