Japan has more than proven itself to be an important hotspot when we’re talking about technological development and innovation. Take a look at some of the craziest products.
It’s crazy to think how this one tiny nation from the Pacific brought forth so many things that literally changed the way how we live our lives. Consumer electronics, medical technology, transportation, even food and fashion, Japan always has something new and modern to offer for everyone.
And while we remain thankful for all these meaningful contributions, we still couldn’t help ourselves but laugh over those trending “weird Japanese inventions” that has recently been popping all over the internet. But these crazy things are not exactly what they appear to be and in fact, they have a name – Chindogu.
By definition, Chindogu are everyday objects that appear to offer solutions to everyday problems. These gadgets can fulfil an intended purpose, but when you actually use them, a whole new range of issues arise, i.e. embarrassment and awkwardness.
Call them genius or weird, or something in between, these latest Japanese tech innovations will make you scratch your heads and wonder the extent of what our minds can achieve.
Bringing Social Media To Eye-Level (Literally)
While Google has yet to produce consumer-grade wearable computer glasses or “smart glasses” for a much wider market, Japan has already been making glasses that provide straight-to-the-point features social media fanatics can make use of.
Called FUN’IKI Glasses, these eyewear relieves the wearer from the need to constantly check his smartphone screen for notifications. These glasses will literally push all updates right in front of the user’s eyes. And if you think it’s only about social media, this device can also help remind you of any tasks you need to be doing.
The device, which weighs half as that of a tennis ball, uses LED technology in its display and it has a mini speaker – you know, just in case you miss that blinking notification.
