Technological ascendancy of Japan is making possible the realization of products that have the potential to forever change the lives of many people. And of course the robots are the main protagonists.
Japan is renowned as the home of technology and where inventors can indulge their genius, creating innovations surprising and sometimes disconcerting.
The country is unquestionably a superpower technology and some of the most recent inventions of Japanese scientists could drastically change the whole world and the way of life of many people.
Below is a list of the latest Japanese inventions that change our lives sooner than we imagine.
- Universal Vending Machines: We all appreciate the vending machines to enjoy a coffee or a snack occasionally. However, the Japanese launched a new generation of vending machines, which deliver from umbrellas to eggs, fresh tomatoes from the salad. In practice there is no commercial product that is not distributed automatically.
- Camera for the brain: Many scientists dream to harness the power of the human brain unexpressed. Japanese inventors have created a prototype of a camera, calledNeurocam, which records brain waves and turns them into animated GIFs. Neurocamuses an iPhone connected to a headband that detects signals EEG (electroencephalographic) of the wearer. Neurocam interprets these signals through a sophisticated algorithm that translates the brain activity into images on an iPhone. This technology, although currently it is the initial state, could be a precursor to see dreams, memories or ideas, completely changing the way we communicate and share information.
- Dual battery Ryden Organic Carbon: The Japan Power Plus, a company based inTokyo, is creating a new set of sustainable energy products, including a battery completely recyclable. The battery Ryden Dual Organic Carbon will hold more energy for a longer time than any other known technology. It may be loaded 20 times faster than normal batteries and, not using minerals or metals pollutants, can be 100% recycled.
- Wearable robot: The best thing for people with mobility problems is to have a robot that can meet their needs for movement. Robotic technology can effectively allow everyone to walk, run and work. Panasonic is currently developing new robots esoscheletrici, that people can wear it as a dress. The technology has been up to now in the hands of the military, but soon will be available for workers, physically disabled or even normal people who want more power of movement in everyday life. The suit Powerloader costs up to $ 7,000, weighs 40 kilograms and can carry a load of up to 30chilogrammi. Soon it will become even lighter it will revolutionize the way people work and recover physical injuries.
- 4K Super HD television: Imagine a television screen with a clear vision that gives the idea to reach out and touch the images of real life. Exactly one offering the super-resolution HD 4K that Sharp and Sony are going to turn into a commercial reality.
- Androids Kodomoroid, Ontonaroid & Telenoid: Robotics has the potential to change everything we know about social interaction and raises important philosophical questions on human consciousness. Incredibly, Hiroshi Ishiguro and his team at Osaka University have developed three female robots with human physical attributes such as skin color, facial features, hair and even clothing. The robots are called Kodomoroid, Ontonaroud and Telenoid.
- ASIMO, the robot: The Japanese, in the last fifteen years, have always been at the forefront of robotics. ASIMO, Honda’s robot is a huge step forward in the field of robotics. ASIMO can do many things like greet visitors, opening bottles and serve drinks. The latest update of the robot allows him to jump and run up to 5 km per hour, a result hitherto unthinkable for a robot.
- Space elevator: The idea of an elevator to space dates back to the early ‘900, when Russian scientists worked on a similar project. In our day, the Tokyo Obayashi Corpplans to build a space elevator by 2050. The elevator will send tourists on a space station connected through a system of carbon nanotubes. Using mainly solar energy, the elevator will carry up to 30 people at a speed of 200 kilometers per hour, nearly the speed of a high speed train. This type of technological innovation, if successful, will forever change the world of engineering, tourism, and space exploration.
