A solution in search of a problem, or a solution to a problem that you were too proud to cop to? SoftEther has just revealed what might be the final blow to Barbie’s distinguished career: the sensor-splashed QUMA. So far as we can tell, the human-shaped puppet contains a myriad sensors to pick up precise bends and flexes, and then pipes that information to a screen. Aside from showing your team of ballerinas exactly how their routine should look, we’re guessing that the real future here is in far more sophisticated tasks — things like artificial intelligence, major motion pictures and scientific research. As the saying goes, a video’s worth a zillion words, so have a peek for yourself just after the break.

Researchers over in the land of the robot-obsessed have found a new, non-invasive way to control your hand while your brain recoils in horror. Reassuringly named the PossessedHand, this belt of electro-stimulation wraps its pad of twenty-eight electrodes around your forearm triggering a range of sixteen bewitched joint actions. Project leader Emi Tamaki claims it feels more like a light massage than say, a full-on Freejack. However, one test subject confessed, “[It was] like my body was hacked” — so that’s comforting. This joint production between the University of Tokyo’s Rekimoto Lab and Sony Computer Science Laboratories was first tested as a musical training aide, but could someday help stroke victims regain mobility. For now, the stimulation isn’t strong enough to turn you into an automated Steve Vai (or secret assassin), but it definitely lends new meaning to ‘hands-off.’ Check the video after the break for a demonstration and some unsettling narration.

The HTC EVO 3D and LG Optimus 3D just got themselves a new buddy in the three-dee picture-taking arena in the shape of Sharp’s Aquos Phone SH-12C. We know, that name just rolls off the tongue. What’s remarkable about the 12C is that the dual cameras on its back go all the way up to 8 megapixels (to the EVO 3D’s 5), which will be creating quite the tasty workload for the 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 chip contained within. A qHD (540 x 960) screen resolution also keeps up with HTC’s latest, though the 4.2-inch, 3D-capable display on the Aquos offers more pixel density and less in absolute real estate. Android 2.3, replete with some evident customizations, will serve as the OS, and 720p video recording in 3D will also be available when Sharp launches the 12C in Japan on May 20th. Rest of the world? Well, we can dream about it right now.

Mark this day, folks, because the brainiacs have finally made a breakthrough in quantum teleportation: a team of scientists from Australia and Japan have successfully transferred a complex set of quantum data in light form. You see, previously researchers had struggled with slow performance or loss of information, but with full transmission integrity achieved — as in blocks of qubits being destroyed in one place but instantaneously resurrected in another, without affecting their superpositions — we’re now one huge step closer to secure, high-speed quantum communication. Needless to say, this will also be a big boost for the development of powerful quantum computing, and combine that with a more bedroom friendly version of the above teleporter, we’ll eventually have ourselves the best LAN party ever.

Marvelous’s new 3DS game, Senran Kagura, is a side-scrolling action platformer starring a group of five ninja school students battling evil mercenary ninjas. You can juggle enemies in aerial combos, double-jump and dash around the screen. Sounds awesome, right?

Oh, by the way, all the characters are young women, “ranked” by bust size. During the game, their clothes tear off, and occasionally the screen will zoom in and display their decreasingly covered bodies in 3D.

Senran Kagura will be out in Japan this summer.

Recently few websites and forums published the information about artificial hym€ns being popular among Chinese women who want to fake their virginity. These hym€ns are distributed under the brand of “Joan of Arc”, who is also known by the name “Virgin of Orleans”.

The funny fact is that these hym€ns are coming packed TWO in a wooden box or paper bag. That’s really weird. Why two? Wouldn’t just one be enough? Well, I’ll leave this question to the consideration of readers and meanwhile will provide the adapted translation of website homepage, distributing this irreplaceable (?) product.


Introduction: The origins of Joan of Arc Red

For women, hym€n is very important. But due to participation in various sport disciplines, premarital tasting of the forbidden fruit and other acts, the hym€n can be damaged and broken. This can haunt the woman’s whole future life. Joan of Arc Red came to solve this problem. “Once you try it, your secret sorrow will be solved”

“J@panese Joan of Arc Japan” was invented in 1993 by Dr. Shiro Hisaki from the Human Science Research Center in Kyoto, Japan. It first became popular among the college students in Seto Inland Sea. In 1995 it was popularized in Thailand and nowadays is used by many women in Southeast Asia, South Asian subcontinent and the Middle East.

I. Who should use Joan of Arc Red

1. Female whose hym€n was broken due to physical exercise (gymnastics, track and field sports, martial arts, etc.)
2. Females whose hym€n was broken due to premarital s€x (active or passive)
3. Females whose hym€n was broken as a result of childhood games
4. Females whose hym€n was broken due to m@sturb@tion
5. Females with congenital defects of hym€n

II. The principle of Joan of Arc Red

Put the artificial hym€n, Joan of Arc Red, into v@gin@. When being dissolved by secretions, it changes into gelatinous mass and quickly binds. After penetr@tion of p€nis and friction, red pigment from Joan of Arc Red will be spread over male’s and female’s s€xual organs.

III. How to use Joan of Arc Red

1. Wash and dry your hands. Take out the hym€n from the aluminum foil package and rub it with your hands. Don’t rub it too vigorously in order not to affect the liquid absorption.

2. If v@gin@ is moist, you can put the hym€n directly into it. If v@gin@is dry, before insertion, the hym€n can be moistened with cold or warm water. Insert to the depth of 5 cm (about the second joint of the middle finger). Do it quickly so that it doesn’t stick to the fingers when you take them out.

3. You can have s€x 3-5 minutes after putting the artificial hym€n, Joan of Arc Red (put it in few minutes before the foreplay, generally speaking it can be broken 20 minutes after insertion).

4. Using it is not painful. In order to achieve the better result, woman should moan as if the real hym€n is broken. After s€x, go to the washroom to clean the bloody excretions. Use cleansing lotion 3-5 times.

5. Easy to use. Clinically proven to be non-toxic and without side effects. Painless, no allergic reactions.

IV. Is Joan of Arc Red safe?

Many [women] seeing the ad are initially tempted by Joan of Arc Red, but worry about its effectiveness and safety. These worries are unnecessary. Joan of Arc Red was invented in 1993 and after nearly 20 years’ development and improvement, it is mature product, with most possible problems taken in account. Dear customers, rest assured with your purchase.

V. Is the breaking of Joan of Arc Red painful?

Not very painful, just a little bit. Otherwise it will create confusion. The material sticks to v@gin@’s wall and its breaking causes little pain as with the rupture of the real hym€n. Moreover, it will emit a small amount of “blood” which is similar to a mixture of real blood with v@gin@l secretions as with the real flow during the first time

VI. Composition of Joan of Arc Red

Natural proteins (without any side effects to human body), synthetic membranes, hemoglobin, water-soluble sodium carboxymethyl, cellulose-based agents and so on. [...]

2_G_1272164329417VII. What’s the difference between the product packed in wooden box or paper bag?
Only the package is different. The principle itself, chemical composition and the size (5 cm * 3.5 cm * 0.02 cm) are the same. Wooden box is safer for transportation. Paper package can be put into handbag when going out. All packages are coming with two [hym€ns], each in its own sterile aluminum foil package.

VIII. Manufacturer of Joan of Arc Red

Miyamoto Brothers Company, Chiba, Kobe, Japan. Come with product certificate and other documents.

IX. Precautions for the usage of Joan of Arc Red

1. Wash hands and keep them clean when using. Don’t use it immediately after shower. The product can be generally retained in the body for 1-2 hours, and sometimes for 4-5 hours. However, the high body temperature and [v@gin@l] discharge will lead to earlier product melting.
2. Should not be used by menstruating or pregnant women. Women having v@gin@l wounds or gynecological diseases are suggested to get treatment before usage.

X. Guarantee of Joan of Arc Red

The expiration date for a product in wooden boxes is until 2012 while the paper boxes are valid until 2015.


In conclusion I’d like to notice that not everyone in China knows French history and Joan of Arc. Thus, the wittiness of this brand name is possibly unnoticed by most Chinese consumers. I wonder if ChinaHush readers can come up with some creative names that could be used in the Chinese market.

And those of you who want to know if virginity is important nowadays in China, are invited to read my post about virginity complex of Chinese girls.

Japan earthquake fixed road

Japan earthquake damaged roadDue to the extensive damage in Japan caused by the massive earthquake and resultant tsunami on March 11, many have questioned if the island nation can recover in a year, much less a few months. If the swiftness with which the Japanese can repair roads is any indication, we wouldn’t bet against the country cleaning up this catastrophe in short order.

As a result of the quake, a 150-meter section of the Great Kanto Highway in Naka was absolutely obliterated, with massive chasms running right through the middle of the road. Work crews at the NEXCO road repair company sprang into action on March 17, working at a fevered pitch to help get their country on the road to recovery, literally. Amazingly, after only six days of labor, the road is silky smooth and ready for travel. Look at the the before and after photos above to see just how amazing this feat is.

Given the fact that road crews in the U.S. can spend three or more months repairing a single lane of concrete, only to leave the orange barrels on the road for another two weeks, we’re blown away by this feat of engineering. Simply amazing.

Japan’s insatiable hunger for Monster Hunter can only be cured with … actual food, inspired by Monster Hunter. Chain restaurant Anrakun is preparing a special menu of four dishes inspired by Capcom’s multiplayer hack ‘n slash, including a “cow bone” (pictured left) and boney sausages (pictured right). These delicacies are not cheap, going for 609 yen each (~$7.38).

These limited-time promotions are quite common in Japan, creating a niche kind of tourism. We’re guilty of taking part as well, having gone so far as to review Monster Hunter-branded ramen.
