3-D Modeling tool (Part 2)

Out of various applications of the rapid prototyping system, Projection Modeler, is reportedly field-proven to play very important roles in a research and development field of new medicines.

Atomic coordinates being extracted from a pdb file (“pdb” stands for Protein Data Bank that is a repository for 3-D structural data of proteins and nucleic acid and that is internationally opened and public for anyone to access to), a 1.4 mm-radius ball is set in each atom position of a three-dimensional protein molecule structure while the ball size is magnified by 10-40 million times from the angstrom-size of the atom. The enlarged three-dimensional structure of the protein molecule is modeled by the above-mentioned Projection Modeler.

Observing and clearly recognizing the protein molecule structure from the model, a medicine research-and-developer can design and create a new molecule structure of medicine which to respond to the protein molecule structure.

This sounds great, doesn't it! The projection modeler not only gives us a fan but really contributes to the medical area.

3D Modeling tool (Part 1)

There must be a few tools in the world to produce 3 dimensional models not only on the computer screen but also physically in your hands. However, it seems to me that the rapid-prototyping system, Projection Modeler is exceptionally unreal. Out of so many applications in the business field, the technology, which consists of the newly developed 3-D modelling software and hardware, give us some fan. The modified technology provides you with a capability to get a miniaturised 3-D copy of your own bust. What you have to do is to sit in a special booth for a few second, just as taking your photo in the booth. You'll get a 7-inch-height bust of your own, together with tinny dolls of your self if you wish. Autofact Inc., a Japanese software company jointly worked to develop the 3-D modeller with the hardware manufacturer.

Wow, such a simple way to access to Internet!!

It is really simple! One action of putting a USB stick in your PC or Mac, and you get a web-site where you perhaps access to exclusive or personalized content. No ID, no password even no url is required for you to type in. When you remove the stick, the site closes. QiGO LLC offers the USB sticks, QiGO keys and services, which free you from the log-in process to access to a site of premium Internet content. You can use the QiGO key not only with your own computer but also with your friends' or your company's.

It's cool. You may want to use the QiGO keys to share some of premium Internet content with your friends or family members. This is just a piece of example. There seem to be a broad range of applications of the product and services, including but not limiting to, photo and video sharing, kid-safe Internet, multi-player games, media subscription, entertainment promotion. Even in enterprise market segments, QiGO seem to have capability to improve some business transactions.

QiGO excites and inspires my brain so much for the future.

Dancing Music Robot

Playing music, it's dancing by itself! "Miuro" is the name. Seeing is Believing! Let's take a look at a YouTube video, I'm attaching here.



It seems to me that this robot is one of typical examples of hi-tech-integration. This is cute, isn't it? I'd buy it if its price would be within my budget.

Open Architecture

A book I recently read reminded me that Dr. Ken Sakamura proposed and had been taking the leadership for Open Architecture, foreseeing the Ubiquitous Computing era, we are now stepping into, for quite a long time up until now. It was, he says in the book, 30 years ago and away back of Linux. In 1984, when he started TRON Project, (TRON stands for The Real-time Operating system Nucleus), he earnestly advocated the concept of Open Architecture. Being in the Ubiquitous or Pervasive computing era, TRON plays key roles in various fields, such as mobile phone systems, consumer electronics, automobile navigation systems, and so on. TRON will be continuously enhanced and applied to more products and systems which will be newly developed in the future. TRON is just one of many things Japanese developed. Believing that new innovation will be continuously made and delivered from Japan, I’m in a happy feeling tonight. I wish if I were an innovator….

I'm pleased to get this blog started here today. I have been in the telecommunications and network industry, which continuously and revolutionarily improves ways of our communications on this planet of the earth. Moving forward, I wanted to touch and feel the benefits of the network a bit more proactively and personally, jotting down what I will see, observe and think of on time-to-time basis.

Using "SMB technologies" as key words, I would like to step into the cloud of the Internet. SMB (small and medium sized business) is an exciting area where I am always finding interesting impressive products and technologies.

At this blog site, I may be just clipping and leaving pieces of information available on the internet. However, I hope, this will become a kind of index of the brilliant products and technologies delivered by the small and medium sized enterprise and companies in the future. Further more, I'd be very happy if this site, at some point in time, would be able to provide viewers with some hints or stimulation for their consideration of collaboration work between the viewers' and the SMB technologies on this site to create uniquely new one.

Starting from Tokyo area, I hope, I'll be moving into other geographic areas. Despite of my blog writings focused on Japan SMB technologies, for those viewers, who may want to check other technologies out side of Japan, I located Tech-Biz Search Window at the bottom of the right hand side of the blog page. Try to enter technology related key words to find technology business information in the world.
