The Future is Robots! Henn na Hotel in Tokyo

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Rawr!

 


 

There is a futuristic hotel run almost entirely by Robots! Yes you heard that correctly Robots! At the reception of the Henn na Hotel (Strange Hotel) a female humanoid welcomes and checks in guests. There is an automated trolley takes guests bags to their room. With the help of Facial recognition technology,  guests are allowed to enter their room. This takes away the hassle of carrying around a hotel key. The question though is this: Will it recognize your face after a night of Sake?

So as you can see there’s also raptors with a bow tie to greet you in Japanese, English, or Korean. There are also robots that handle all the window-cleaning and vacuuming. It also boasts an air-conditioning system that is sensor-controlled and tailored to your personal body temperature. It was geared towards business travel however now with the coming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo they are hoping to vet tourists as well.

Here is a little something from their official website: About the Radiant Panel Air Conditioning System at Henn na Hotel
This system uses electromagnetic waves to transfer heat directly from one object to another without affecting the air in between. When it is hot out, this radiating-type heating/cooling system draws heat away from your body to make you feel cool. When it is cold out, it makes you feel warm by keeping heat from escaping your body. It also creates a lower temperature differential than conventional heating/cooling systems and is less affected by air currents.

 

 

So tell us Geek Impulse Fam, What do you think about this futuristic hotel run almost entirely by robots. WE think Henn na Hotel in Tokyo is excellent and no better place for this concept to work than in Japan, but I am sure it would possibly work else where in the future.

Humanoid Robot Perfected: Takayuki Todo

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Humanoid Robot Perfected: Takayuki Todo

 

I recently came across a video of a Humanoid Robot Perfected that fascinated me. I started off curious about what the video would show. I expected just another robot. Once the video started to play I became captivated. I couldn’t stop watching it. I have watched it several time since then. Each time I find myself in an uncanny situation. The artist managed to capture emotions in such a profound way, I found myself becoming emotionally engaged with every passing second.

 

Humanoid Robot Perfected
藤堂高行

 

The artist is 藤堂高行 Takayuki Todo. His video has gone viral. As of writing this it has already gotten over 1.2 nillion views just on Twitter alone and is starting to go viral on Facebook. I wish I can go on and put into words just how creative Takayuki Todo is, but instead I will leave a link to the video itself here so you can watch it directly as words cannot honestly convey the level of creativity, innovation and craftsmanship that was put into this work.

 

 

 

 

The future looks exciting and if more artist such as Takayuki Todo, continue to create and innovate and share it with the world I believe the future will be AMAZING!

Kawaii YouTuber ‘ Kizuna Ai’s BEAT Scramble’ to Air on Japanese TV

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Kawaii YouTuber Kizuna AI which claims to be a first of its kind as a Japanese Girl Artificial Intelligence, has gained tremendous notoriety over the past year. I first found her in March of 2017 if my recollection is correct. I was hooked. With other YouTube “AI” claims that have proven to be false by glitches, she remains pure thus far.

 

This is why it is no surprise that she will be getting her own TV slot. The television program is titled Kizuna Ai’s BEAT Scramble. The show will be broadcasted on Fridays at 12:00 a.m. JST on BS NTV. You can find the official announcement on the official twitter account.

 

 

Are you as excited about this move for the Kawaii and Lovable Kizuna Ai as we are here at Geek Impulse? Let us know in the comments below.

HelloKitty Jet coming back to LAX, starting March 27th

HelloKitty Jet coming back to LAX, starting March 27th

 

 

 

If you are a fan of Sanrio and of Hello Kitty then we have some news for you. You can now fly on select flights with Eva Air who has partnered with Sanrio on this venture. I know if I wasn’t busy writing articles and running a business her at Geek Impulse I would take a flight just to experience it. I personally have taken Eva Air when I went from LAX to Narita International Airport during the fall because ANA didn’t have a flight that agreed with me. Needless to say it was a comfortable flight. I wish I had this though because this is KAWAII OVERLOAD! Don’t take it from me. Here is some information from the website itself:

 

The Lazy Egg, Gudetama, is taking his time packing his luggage since he is going on an overseas vacation. The concept behind the Comfort Flight is to invite passengers to escape from the tedious life and travel at their pleasure. Let’s all get on board, laid back and carry out the “Gudatama’s philosophy of laziness” !  

 

 

Here are some photos from the Site:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wish I could be on this flight. Let us know in the comments below if you are going to use this flight and if you do be sure to share with us those photos.

The Book of Anime: Senpai

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Book of Anime: Senpai

 

Book of Anime is a  series where we define and explain for you, the terms used in anime and give

valuable insights into the anime industry. Today we are discussing the term Senpai. Senpai is a 

(Japanese word) when translated into English means Upperclassman. Though I am sure you have heard

it a lot in anime so far, you may not know exactly why or how it’s used. So to give a simple example,

(pause) anyone older than you in school is a Senpai. This term of course automatically commands

respect and is an important distinction for the relationship dynamic. Senpai can be used by itself or at

the end of a name such as Saito-Senpai and is used in a place of work as well.

 

 

Let’s now look at from a Senpai perspective.  When a person is called Senpai, he or she wears it as a

badge of honor. We have all seen characters in anime take their role as Senpai very seriously. For Me

personally, being called a Senpai is humbling, but for Some though in anime or In real life insist upon it

being used when speaking to them. It’s important to Remember though The term can be a bit diluted in

Anime fan culture because pretty much anyone you have admiration for is considered Senpai. Hopefully

now that you have an explanation the term Senpai you have a better understanding of what it means

and how to use it.  So tell us, Do you have a Senpai in real life? If so let us know who your Senpai is in

real life.
