Robonurse looks much friendlier than, but not more useful than a Hoyer lift.

Very reminiscent of the Cyberdyne video that leads in to Terminator 3-D at Universal ... the part where the mom tucks her kid in?

Japanese create talking toilet
Major Japanese toilet maker Toto has created a talking commode. The new Neo model has a robotic lid that moves in time with its voice, which for some reason is male. Neo features in a series of short video ads for the Japanese market, apparently as a joke. The videos show Neo chatting with a man about everyday things like relationships and riding Japan Railways trains.

Neo 2 is designed to provide every function imaginable, a tongue-in-cheek reference to Japan's highly engineered toilets. Neo 2's ridiculously long armrest features more than 10 buttons. They can make Neo 2 tell jokes, give the weather forecast, or display an outsize bum scrubber.

With retail sales sluggish, Japanese marketing executives reach for the internet thesaurus to emphasise how serious this sale is:

It didn't, they were selling square ones 5 years ago, and heart shaped 3 years ago.

Yebbut Zen is thinking in terms of Japanese dynasties.
Given that their recorded history is dated in the AD rather than BC, how did it take so long to grow a heart-shaped melon?!

Some facts:
There are around 5,000,000 vending machines in Japan.
The incidence of violent crime is one seventh the rate in the United States.
The rate of violent crime is falling.
And my favorite:


Does anyone believe for a second that this might actually work, and not leave you standing there looking like a complete twit when the stalker rips open the fabric?
They were bought for cosplay, zen. You're slipping...

The spreading epidemic of media placement seeping into every nook and cranny of your daily life is something known in the advertising industry as Ad Creep.

Well, media placement doesn't get much creepier than this.

Japanese PR company Absolute Territory has begun paying young women (18+) to wear advertising stickers on their thighs between the edge of their miniskirts and their high socks.
