Japan has brought one of my dreams to life! Augmented reality dinosaurs! That’s cool as hell! I was a big ol’ dinosaur fanatic when I was younger (to the point where I wanted to go into paleontology—yeah, that big), but unfortunately I’ve never so much as seen dinosaur bones. Visiting this would at least somewhat […]View Item
I wasn’t sure what to think a few months back when I was given a link to the trailer of Cat Shit One with no further information.
It has this Watership Downish feel to it, and thus my soul keeps preparing to be depressed while watching that.

Well, we’ve arrived. We’ve come to the point where billboards can scan us and feature advertising based on what we (might) like. This is all thanks to Yahoo! Japan, which is kinda like Japan’s Google, if you get what I mean. It won’t be long now—this fall, in fact. First they’ll start off small, then […]View Item
If you needed another reason to visit Osaka, well then… here it is:
We already know that Japan has a mastery of pixel-toys to rival that of Huru-Humis (seriously, why do we even bother); Tomagotchi brought us all joy and possibly made us well up and cry back when. I know I just couldn’t get over it when all eight of mine died simultaneously. Oh, but the innovation […]View Item
