punk from little



McDonald's Japan is set to launch its third series of "mega" burgers next month.
Twin sandwiches, "MegaTomato" and "MegaTamago". They're to be available in limited-edition from December 14 to January 10 at McDonald's throughout Japan.


National decided it would invent a model that could address to all concerns. The A-LA-UNO was engineered with a powerful bowl-scouring spiraling flush and an internal tank that uses common dish soap. According to National, the combination produces a double-bubble whammy with amazing cleaning power. Yet the A-LA-UNO uses much less water than previous toilets, saving owners almost 13,000 yen every year in water bills ($110).
The A-LA-UNO comes with internal LED lighting that illuminates the floor and glows inside the tank. It's also equipped with 12 music tracks and 3-D stereo speakers for those who like or who want to camouflage other sounds intrinsic to toilet time.
Plus, the A-LA-UNO has an odor eliminating fan and sensors that automatically lift the lid when you enter the room and close it after you've left. As an added bonus, the seat heats up instantly—but only when its being used—providing over 5,000 yen more in savings versus toilets that are constantly warmed.


Maruione launched on Saturday 1st is now officially open as a international online store with famous brands such as h.Naoto and Black Peace Now.

Shadow Plays

Last winter there was the set up of a shadow play projection on a huge Shibuya wall next to a parking lot called Big Shadow.
When people moved by, their silhouettes were enhanced and deformed, and eventually the game’s creatures would enlarge on the wall and play tricks on the crowd.
But despite the temporary excitement, people lose interest pretty quickly, especially in a city like Tokyo.

Akarium Project

Last Christmas, Omotesando Street in Aoyama was spiced up by a little bit of interactive play to these sixty objects, each of them being six meters high: the so called Akarium Project.
Anyone could call the collumns by mobile or over the internet and her or his voice would dynamically control the pulsation of the lights.
But is it Tokyo with it's high buildings, screens and neon signs, the right place for something like Akarium? However, the usage of cellphones it might improve the interest for interaction.
