My company featured in Highlighting JAPAN

Post by Harisenbon » Tue 10.20.2009 9:02 pm

The governmental public relations office in Japan publishes a magazine (online and print) called HighlightingJAPAN that aims to promote Japan and Japanese culture to the world.

Well, this month the "Science Cafe" restaurant that my company created was featured in a half-page article entitled "Some Science with Your Coffee." It's a pretty neat (if short) article, and discusses some of the things we have going on there like our 3-d projector system and whatnot.

Anyhow, if you're interested, take a look! (Sorry, English Only)

You used a 3-d camera to film the birth of the universe, huh? That's cool.

Yup. The hardest part was finding a chair to sit in while we were filming.
Can you imagine STANDING for 300 millennia while the universe formed?
Talk about boring. ;)

I think finding a chair would be difficult, what with no matter and all.

Well, technically there was already matter a fraction of second after the Big Bang ... though nowadays people usually talk about the "normal" Universe only after inflation.
