5 Weirdest Japanese Gadgets.The Land of the Rising Sun isn’t just the home of sushi, Sony, and Super Mario, it’s also host to more bizarre gadgets, strange toys, and Hello-Kitty-branded items than you can even fathom.
5 Weirdest Japanese Gadgets
1.Face Bank $23+
Never have we seen a stronger deterrent to saving money – or closing your eyes to sleep at night – than Face Bank.
This little automated bank from Banpresto opens its mouth when you hold your hand nearby to swallow coins.
Feed it a quarter and it will feverishly gnaw at it with its rubbery lips until the coin drops into its square rubber gut.
You really need to see it in action to appreciate it.
2.Yamaha Tenori-On $1,200
Japanese musician Toshio Iwai designed the Tenori-On as a unique digital instrument that can be operated by interacting with a grid of moving LEDs.
The motion they display actually translates to sound, which both plays through the built-in speakers and can be recorded.
Most of the clips we’ve seen sound like a six year old pounding on a synthesizer. It’s the guitar of the future,
which is why we’re making a point not to live past 90.
Leave it to the Japanese to take ordinary RFID technology and translate it to something strange and apparently useless.
After attaching RFID tags called ztamp:s to different objects, you can wave them in front of the computer-controlled
mir:ror to perform a preprogrammed action.
4.Thanko USB Warm Gloves
1000-watt power supply on that deluxe gaming computer not throwing off enough heat to keep your parents’ basement toasty?
Attach these USB-powered gloves that electrically heat your hands and you’re set to game on for depressingly long periods.
But seriously, for those who suffer from tyrannical thermostat-lowering roommates or parents intent on
keeping the house at an efficient 50 degrees, these could be a cheap way to keep those fingers from turning blue.
5.Banpresto Aquapict LED Jellyfish Aquarium $160
Can’t spring for real jellyfish in a glass box? We hear you. Japanese manufacturer Banpresto also apparently heard the
cry of consumer demand for affordable illuminated jellyfish in a box, and voila, the Aquapict LED Jellyfish Aquarium was born.
The simulated sea creatures are actually made of silicon, and they wave back and forth in the tank on currents from a pump while
LED lights set the mood. Fill the tank with painful skin-stinging toxins and it’s just like the real thing.
