Dental Robot Simroid

Simroid

That’s right folks, another robot from Japan. This time it’s a robot designed to train new dentists. It can feel pain, respond to pain and follow simple instructions by the dentist. This is done via a multitude of sensors that also help monitor the performance of the dentist. She even has a sensor on her chest to prevent lazy dentist from resting their elbows on her err cushions. ^_^

Developed by Dr. Naotake Shibui of the Nippon Dental University in Tokyo, who co developed the robot with engineers from Kokoro Co. Ltd (they also made Actroid, the receptionist robot). Simroid is actually modeled after a real 28-year-old Japanese women whose fear of dentist and pain has made her famous as “Pain Girl”(痛いガール).

I don’t know about you guys but the fact that it can talk with it’s mouth open like that really freaks me out.

Azumanga Fantasy

Azumanga Fantasy X-2 OsakaXYuna

Crossover time! Found these over at Konachan. It’s Azumanga Daioh meets Final Fantasy X-2! Characters from one of my favourite Anime of all time playing characters from one of my favourite games of all time. I love it. Especially with Ayumu Kasuga AKA “Osaka” as Yuna. Can you imagine the hilarity of such a situation? It would certainly make X-2 waaaay more interesting.

Another interesting one, Yukari-sensei as Leblanc. That just fits her so perfectly. I think Leblanc’s character was based of Yukari. I LOL’ed.

Dead Fantasy

If I had only one word to describe this video, it would be “HOLYFUCKSHITWOAH!!11“. The CG quality may not be on par with some CG movies but the fight choreography can actually give some of those movies a run for their money. It honestly is really really good. Awesome even. Take note that those CG movies usually have million dollar budgets and teams of people working on it. This video is basically made by a group of guys(or gals) who have too much free time on their hands and I thank god that time was so freely given away to them. My hats off too the great Monty Oum and friends for this piece of awesome win.

I’m really at a lost for words to describe this video but just watch it and then head on over to his profile to find out more.

Store Clerk Scares Thief

bloody knife girl

This video has been making its rounds around YouTube apparently. It’s a surveillance video footage of an attempted robbery in Tokyo recently.

When the robber walked up to him with a knife he basically freaked out and started screaming about just being a part-timer and having no money. This hysterics eventually led to him jumping on the counter, still screaming, which then freaks out the robber who promptly ran out. Heck, if i saw a jumping, screaming Japanese part-timer i would be scared shit-less too. The weird part is that when the robber ran away, the clerk actually gave chase. Or maybe he ran home?

Chi’s Sweet Home

chi_screencap

Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! I present to you a discovery the likes of which have never been seen before by humanity. It will awe and amaze you. It will change your life and the way you view the world! It is kawaii personified, the epitome of cuteness. I give you……CHI!!! </dramatic echo>

Chi is probably the cutest thing on the planet right now. It’s so cute I’ve watched every episode available twice. It’s so cute God would rid the world of dogs to save Chi from the fear of being confronted by one, if not for the fact that even dogs cower at Chi’s cuteness and have become it’s loyal servants. If you throw Chi on the beaches of Normandy on D-day, Hitler himself would use his time warping abilities to transport himself there and become it’s shield and the Allied troops would see this and cease attacking and the Nazis would drop their weapons to aid Chi and the war would end and there’ll forever be peace of Earth! Alas, Hitler remained an evil bitch. Yes ladies and gentlemen, contrary to what i have said earlier Chi is the cutest thing on earth! Chi is the Ultimate Cuteness! (not to be confused with Azrael’s Ultimate Sweetness©)

What? Hitler doesn’t have time warping abilities? What?! You think he’s dead?! Ok man, whatever makes you happy mmkay? Here’s my favourite episode. Now if you’ll excuse me i have an altar to build.

Oshibori Art

oshibori art

That is a bunny made out of wet hand towels. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, the Japanese have done it again. Not content with gundam maids and used panties vending machines, they have decided to advance the art origami into the new millennium. This is… Oshibori Art!

This is apparently the latest craze to hit Japan and a fellow gaijin has started the initiative to bring this art to the english speaking masses with his website called…what else? Oshibori Art.

Oshibori are wet hand towels serve to you at restaurants before they serve your meals for you to clean up with. They are served warm during cold weather and cold during warm weather. Now I’m guessing that some restaurants either served these too early or served the food too late because obviously, some patrons were actually bored enough to come up with something like this.

Don’t fancy the cute bunny? How about a cat?

Or a penguin?

If you can read Japanese, here’s the original Oshibori Art Site. They even have a museum for these.>_>
