How to Survive Japan’s Comiket

For true blue otakus, Comiket is a haven. This is where members of Japanese-related fandoms (e.g. Touken Ranbu, Kantai Collection, Love Live, Touhou, etc.) converge twice each year. It is a dojinshi fair with records of attendees that reach over half a million.

Artificial Skin with a Sense of Touch: The Future of Prosthetics

Robotics have significantly improved the way prosthetics function. These days, prosthetics are much more than just filling in what’s missing. Advanced robotics has added functionality into prosthetics, allowing amputees to do simple tasks like picking up a glass of water, tying shoelaces, or walking without a noticeable limp. The addition of artificial skin to the world of prosthesis has also enhanced the way they look and feel. Prosthetics are more lifelike and barely noticeable now.

To further develop prosthetics and their functionality, scientists have developed a way to capture sensation, transform it into electrical pulses, and transmit those pulses to the relevant part of the brain, thus giving a sense of touch. Although it’s still far from actual human applications, research results were promising as scientists have been able to send the touching sensation, as electrical pulses, to the appropriate brain cells in mice.

How Social Media Can Improve Your Content Marketing Efforts

Content marketing allows businesses to engage with their consumer base in a more productive and profound way.

Drive More Traffic to Your Business Website

Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is about ensuring that your website gets a decent ranking in search results, or Search Engine Result Pages (SERP). Now, most big companies hire third-party service providers and SEO experts to optimize their website and develop effective Internet marketing strategies to boost their web traffic. A lot of these types of services can be costly, and there’s no guarantee that you’ll get a high return on investment (ROI).

The driving force behind any SEO strategy is content. But, this doesn’t mean that you can simply put any content on your website and just sit back and relax, and watch as your efforts start to increase traffic to your website. It doesn’t work that way. You need to produce the right content if you want to attract the right audience or consumer base. Luckily though, content production doesn’t have to cost a ton of money. Yes, you can hire professionals to develop great quality content for your website, but there are cheaper alternatives you can consider, especially if funding is a concern for you.
