NHK, the main Japanese TV network, and also a big corporation with research departments, was recently able to successfully broadcast 8K video on the air. To simply understand what it means to broadcast video in 8K, we can think of it as transimitting video with a quality “equivalent” to that of a 33.1 megapixel camera. The feat has been possible by using orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) imitating the techniques used by laptops to receive Wifi signals via 802.11.
As of now, it has only been a transmission test at a 27 km (17 miles) distance but NHK is already planning to broadcast the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in 8K.
They say that the snow storms in Tokyo this year are the worst of the last decades. Not only the Kanto region, but almost all the country is covered by a white mantle of snow. It’s time to build snowmen!! But Japanese people are characterized by their creativity, and they just don’t build regular snowmen. The other day Hachiko woke up next to a snow clone:

Ravijour has released to the market the bra “TRUE LOVE TESTER”. This bra has several sensors and connects via bluetooth with smartphones that have a special app that analyzes the level of “real arousal” of the woman that is wearing the bra. If the man has done a good job and has conquered the heart of the woman, the bra will automatically open up…
It is kind of difficult to explain, better watch the video:

My brother sends me the trailer of the movie Hentai Kamen.
The Hentai Kamen movie is fairly new (2013) but the manga is a classic. It was published in Shonen Jump magazine in the beginning of the 90s and it defined the hentai (pervert) dressing style. The main character is a young man who practices martial arts (Kenpo) and that can turn into a superhero by putting some panties on his face.
The movie is quite bizarre but its plot, based on the manga, is quite good.
I recommend Hentai Kamen, a good “WTF movie” to go along with Robogeisha.

Robogeisha is a low budget movie with high levels of surrealism and absurd freakism. The main character is a geisha with innate powers that is recruited by a group of assassing geishas. Step by step, parts of her body are replaced by lethal weapons:

Walking on a road and… she suddenly turns into a tank!
It is BAD movie but it has some good WTF moments guaranteed and it will surely bring a few laughs. If you liked Robegeisha, The Machine Girl is another movie made with the same style by the same director.
