Osaka Ball Pit Bar

Osaka has just launched its first ever ball pit bar. I guess the drinks come with the lids so you can’t spill, but I imagine that would be the least of my concerns when lounging it a pile of balls with drunk strangers.

Dive doesn’t have any tables or chairs, just a giant pit filled with over 20,000 colorful orbs for patrons to plunge into. There are all-you-can-drink rates for sixty to ninety minutes depending on the day, and the booze is served with lids so people don’t spill them in the ball pit. – Kotaku

Oh Osaka, don’t change.

Of course the Japanese invented a spray that makes everything smell like cat head.

The head of Yamamoto Perfumery, Mr. Yamamoto himself, spent four months of series research, going from cat cafe to cat cafe sniffing different feline’s heads. – Kotaku

Even the cat is like “What the?!”

Japan’s Chicken McNugget Meal

It looks like Japan just introduced a 48 piece Chicken McNugget meal. And of course it comes in a bucket.

The offer is for a limited time only. It’s available only in Niigata Prefecture and part of a promotional tie-up with the the newly launched pop group NGT48, the Niigata-based spin-off of the massively popular idol unit AKB48. – Kotaku

But where is the 1 litre tub of honey mustard dipping sauce?

Two things you’ll never find me doing, jogging and eating tomatoes.

Don’t know what to say about this one, other than the Japanese sure have a delightful and strange sense of humour :D

Japan’s Coffee Making Robot

Pretty cool, but I don’t think I could wait this long for a coffee. After a couple of minutes I may need to be pulled off the robot. I need it now!

Learn English with Darth Vader

Here’s an interesting English/Japanese learning dictionary – The Star Wars Personal English/Japanese Dictionary. Now you can learn such helpful English phrases as “What is thy bidding, my master?” and “These are not the droids you are looking for”. Stay crazy Japan! :D

Facetime While Eating Ramen

Ramen bowl

Just saw this story on Japan Pulse. It’s a conceptualized product for Japan that lets you dock your iPhone in your ramen bowl.

The bowl was created after one of its designers, Minnie Jan, witnessed a man eating with one hand while browsing through his phone with the other, she told the New York Daily News. “We did it for fun — it’s kind of sarcastic,” the paper quoted her as saying. But we think there might be a market for it in Japan.

I don’t know about you, but with the way I eat raman, I don’t think anyone wants to see that up close :)

Brain Controlled Tails

Ahh Japan. May you never cease to amaze me. While it’s only a concept I fully expect to see these “brain controlled” wearable cat tails available at some time.

Thanks to Shandra for sending me this wacky link to TOTO’s newest invention – The Toilet Bike Neo. They say it runs on bio-fuel and waste products. I hope you don’t fill it up the way I think you fill it up :P
