Furniture Made From Jeans!

How would you like to sit on your old jeans that have been rejuvenated back into your livingroom as a sofa?

A Japanese company is doing exactly this, you should note it costs about $400 for them to make you one, but I don’t see why not you can’t do this yourself on your spare time either.

This concept may seem to be a rather strange idea, after denim is not usually associated with furnishings, but in Japan the re-using of materials is a big thing and denim is coming through a good hard wearing and stylish covering for furniture.

Ultrasonic Eye Correction Device From Japan!

Here’s a device from Japan that could possibly correct your eyesight without the use of laser eye surgery.

The device works using ultrasonic to correct your nearsightedness.

Well, such a device would never be legalized in America simply due to the fact that doctors would protest and they’d make a lot less money to, let me add.

If this device works well, I might be heading over to Japan later to get my hands on one, my eyes are soooo bad. (minus 10)

Brave souls need only to place the contraption in front of one eye a

Wow, they have this USB “boob” warmer in Japan.  How cool is that?  These guys are so creative they will market ANYTHING!

These kidney-bean pads heat up to 40°C when plugged into USB, effectively taking the problem of cold boobs (man- or otherwise) while websurfing off of our collective minds.

If you are lazy and you need to surf the web on your LCD TV while in bed, you might want to get one of these really cool wooden motion-sensing mice.

It’s a rare item that pleases both gadget and nature lovers, but the Jupiter Mouse from Actbrise Electronics does just that. This wooden mouse is handmade from Chinese flowering ash in Japan’s rural Gunma prefecture and earns its name from the natural wood grain swirls and click button that resembles the largest planet’s famous spot.

Creative Japanese Barcodes!

It looks like the Japanese are using barcodes for more than scanning, take a look at how they used barcodes as another place for advertising.  Great idea, I don’t see why U.S. companies are not doing this.

This kind of creative barcode design is completely new to me, but apparently it’s quite common in Asia – or at least Japan. Here’s a full gallery of some unusual product barcodes. Please comment if you have seen similar designs in your country (or if you are missing out on them as well).

Japan Intros Fast Train that goes up to 217MPH!

Japan intros a really fast train that goes up to 217MPH.  Although this is nothing compared to the French train that can go about 357MPH, it wouldn’t hurt to have one in the U.S., where it takes me at least 5 hours to get to L.A. from San Francisco.

Yes, Japan needs to get it a little faster still…(catch up to the French but where’s U.S. in this world train race god darn it!)

Sanyo Z2000 HD Projector does 80-inches HD!

For the ultimate DLP TV, you might want to consider this Sanyo Z2000 HD Projector instead, capable of projecting 80-inches of viewing HD.

All said, for the price of this projector overseas, it’s a bargain. The only downsides are that you have to replace the lamp after so many hours, which is not inexpensive. But for a home theater–WOW! This would sure inspire me to stay home and watch movies–and save the 1800 yen it costs to watch them in Japan! On that note, purchasing this projector in Japan at the current going price of 268,000
