SASARA train and snowplow 

December 19 [Mon], 2005, 11:08
Left picture is a SASARA train. SASARA trains are vehicles for snow removal which operate by the Sapporo street car and the Hakodate street car at a snow coverage term. "SASARA" is the bamboo broom attached in the front of the body, this rotates and the snow on an orbit is eliminated. For this reason, it may be called a bloom type snowplow.


Right picture is snowplow. Snowplows are the vehicles for snow removal. The "Russell" of the Japan name originates in a Russell company snowplow development-origin.
It equips with a braid ahead of vehicles, and snow is pushed aside on one side or the both sides of the advance direction. It plays an active part in initial snow removal of an area with little snow, or a heavy snowfall area. On a railroad, the vehicles which attached the head of a snowplow in the head of a diesel locomotive are used.

Robot exposition 

November 28 [Mon], 2005, 11:54
The Aichi expo ended on September 25.
It was carried out the theme 'environment'. But, on the other hand, it was also a robot exposition. Toyota and Mitsubishi exhibited the robot, and also robots also performed defense, cleaning, and guidance.

WAKAMARU which can speak 10,000 words especially attracted attention.Moreover, the robot of TOYOTA which performs music was assembled for popularity, and in order to see them, many people stood in a line.
It can be said that the experiment of the robot in this expo was a great success.There are some which have already been put in practical use in society and the place of activity of a robot will spread increasingly.

Mobile Suica 

November 21 [Mon], 2005, 11:24
Next year, a cellular phone will become a ticket and a commuter pass at last. It is "Mobile Suica" service of JR East Japan.


A user downloads an application to the cellular phone which carries Felica, and uses as a ticket or a commuter pass. But, it is inconvenient that it is chargeable only from a credit card for the moment.
However, it is expectable in future that there is a shopping function in kiosk etc. in Suica. Moreover, mutual use with ICOCA is also possible for Suica, and also mutual use with the other company is planned.
The day which can be traveled only by the cellular phone may also be near one.

Nissin Food Products broadcast CM of the "CUP NOODLE" from November 2 filmed in the International Space Station(ISS) which goes the earth around . The pilot took a photograph with the highly efficient camera launched with the Soyuz rocket of Russia with the substitute of a station.

  
The Sergei Krikalyov pilot with the world record of space stay drifts the space in a station, and catches the bag of instant noodles. The image which throws the lump of noodles into a mouth while looking at the earth from a window flows with the music of 'Mr. children'.
It may become a familiar spectacle if a private space trip is realized.

You can see the CM.
