Well, I’ve got a treat for all you geeky otaku out there- a video of some of the new technologies seen at the CEATEC electronics show. It’s been out there on YouTube for a little bit but since most of the stuff there has still to be released, it’s still far from dated. Watch a robot ride a bicycle. See tommorow’s holographic disks, capable of holding 300 Gb, and imagine them laugh at the puny accomplishments of today’s 50 Gb Blue-Ray. Then gasp in awe at the storage capacity of Maxell’s futuristic floppy-disk SVOD housing, that promises 5 terabytes in a size that can’t even currently hold one. Watch a passing geek play a video game by moving his own body and defeat an evil space-being byu doing so. Still not impressed? Well, take a look at the robo-jellyfish, swimming around their luminous tank just as happily as would a real one and with practically as much intelligence. If that doesn’t impress you, then nothing will!
The show is screening here.
