Surprising High Tech Things In Japan

Japanese technology is anyway at the cutting edge. It is a truism. Some things may seem common, others are really surprising. These are just some photos chosen in a hurry, at the end of a tiring day. Some extraordinary things are missing from this post. For example, the electrical cars already in use, about 16,000 of them in Japan at the moment, which can be charged for free in some places. And a bus that tilts on a side at the bus stop, so that the passengers can get in. I have read recently about the credit card with fingerprint readers. The list is simply endless. At a quick glance:

Any idea what it is? Maybe a wild guess will say: a vacuum cleaner. Which cleans before we reach home. How convenient! (ノ*゚ー゚)

People recycle a lot in Japan. We all do. However, to a wonderful extent in Japan. Some specific waste/material is taken out on a specific weekday and time, and left at a specific place. The process is very well organized.

The perfect notes, seem to be 3D.

See the Akashi Kaikyou Bridge in the post on 15 August. It is the longest suspension bridge in the world. And below, a bridge in the north-west of Kyushu.

These are extra chairs with backrest in the bus, to be unfolded in case some passengers are standing.

The mobile shows the number of steps walked during one day. More than 20,000 steps in one day, that's a recipe for a long life.

Shinkansen, the bullet train, 240-300 km/h.

The platform is marked where the doors will stop.

Heart defibrillators in public spaces:

The door of any taxi in Japan opens and closes automatically.

I have seen this lace kind of material inside the taxis repeatedly. Maybe it gives a note of elegance.
