Last Updated Jun 2, 2011 8:47 AM EDT With its power grid still hobbled by the March earthquake and tsunami, the government of Japan is asking businesses to go easy on the air conditioning this summer by keeping the thermostat at a ripe 82 degrees. That's led to yet another official government push: encouraging Japan's workforce to dress more casually so it can better withstand what looks to be a very hot summer at the office. The Super Cool Biz initiative -- yes that is the official name of the program launched by Japan's Department of Environment -- is mostly geared toward getting men out of suits and ties, and into polo shirts, aloha (Hawaiian) shirts, and jeans. So if the notoriously formal Japanese are being pushed to dress down, then that's surely got to mean just about anything goes here in the States, right? Probably not. Given the state of the economy, fighting through stifling summer heat with a wardrobe that skews to casual t-shirts, shorts, flip flops, and revealing … [Read more...] about Japan Asks Workers to Dress Down This Summer; What about the U.S.?
Is it "good enough to eat" is no idle question when it comes to the items Seth Doane has been eyeing in Japan: Call it a little Japanese kitchen magic: Ohio native Justin Hanus showed Doane around his adopted home city of Osaka. Known as Japan's food capital, fake or "Sampuru" food abounds here, too. Where do you see "fake" food? "You see it in department stores, in shopping malls, in underground shopping areas, in touristy places such as this -- you see it everywhere," Hanus said. Fake food can overcome a language barrier. "You point to it and say, 'This is what I want,'" said Doane. "Exactly, and that's how it's been in this country for 70, 80 years." Across Japan, realistic-looking food displays are an advertising tool, used by restaurants to demonstrate portion size, and are laid out to try to lure customers. Hanus sells plastic food via his website, fakefoodjapan.com, and claims if you can cook it, they can make a replica that looks good enough to eat. That's thanks to his … [Read more...] about Tasty to the eyes: Japan’s fake food
During Super Bowl week, a handful of sassy robots playfully posed for selfies, simulated throwing a football and quizzed Mall of America visitors on sports trivia. Meet Pepper, who with a tablet mounted on its chest is one of the latest technologies shopping centers are testing to keep customers interested in coming to physical stores. MOA also now uses chatbots on its website and mobile app to answer customers’ questions. While SoftBank Robotics’ Pepper has become a common sight in mobile phone stores, banks and restaurants in Japan, it and other humanoid robots are still a relative novelty here in the U.S. But as the technology has improved and these robots are now being upgraded with facial recognition and artificial intelligence, more companies are beginning to explore if there is a practical business reason to employ such robots beyond just turning heads. The Mall of America, one of the first shopping malls in the U.S. to try out the robots, began its pilot program … [Read more...] about Mall of America tests robots, chatbot as it looks to improve visitor experience
