We all know that Japan is famous for its impressive progress in various fields, especially technology. It is not exaggerating to say that the whole world recognizes Japanese technologies. This country has been exporting so many kinds of technology to other countries across the globe. However, not all Japanese technologies are exported since some of them are too unique for other cultures. Below are anti-mainstream technologies from Japan you might want to know.
Japanese people are super-busy so they love to eat ramen since it is practical and delicious as well. Though it is practical and quick, you need to blow hot ramen first, unless you want to burn your tongue. Therefore, Japan invented a chopstick fan. As you can imagine, these chopsticks have a fan so that you do not have to blow your ramen to cool it down. It is indeed creative, right?
Have you ever felt how hot it is wearing shoes all day long? Especially if you are working in the field where you are exposed to the sun for a long time. This makes your feet hot and stinky. In order to solve this issue, Japan produces shoes equipped with vents located under the sole of the shoes. These vents will exchange the air inside the shoes with fresh air so that the user’s feet do not get hot. With these shoes, you do not have to be worried about getting your feet hot and stinky when you are wearing shoes all day long.
Armpit Clip-On Cooler Fan
Say bye to wet armpits and unpleasant odours with an armpit clip-on cooler fan from Japan. As you know, wet armpits really lower confidence. But with this unique Japanese product, you do not have to be worried about such an issue anymore. You just need to clip this armpit cooler fan in your sleeves. Then, you will feel the cooling sensation in your armpits.
Mute Microphone USB
Besides eating ramen, Japanese people also love karaoke as well. They usually go to karaoke with co-workers after work. But for those who are not confident with their voices, they can use this mute microphone USB. This microphone makes other people not be able to listen to your voice. Even users need headsets to be able to listen to their own voices. This microphone is also practical because you can enjoy karaoke-ing alone by connecting the microphone to your smartphone.
Toilet Sound Blocker
Taking dumps in public toilets or in other people’s house is not comfortable because sometimes there are ‘voices’. So, Japan solves this issue with an innovation in the form of a small, portable tool that you can bring anywhere, called a toilet sound blocker. This toilet sound blocker produces a sound effect that can disguise the sound when you are taking dumps. You just need to put this tool close to you, for example, on the toilet’s wall.
You can choose a variety of sound effects as well as set up the volume. With this innovation, you can comfortably take dumps in public toilets.
