ICT School 2009

Hi, it is NISHIO Hirokazu. Today I'm present at ICT School 2009 by MEXT(Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan). See more, visit http://ictschool.nttls.co.jp/

It is a hackathon for high school students. The year it is focused on GPGPU (general purpose graphics processing unit). Twelve students are creating their program now. Unfortunately I can't attend at their final presentation, but it seems very interesting. Implementation of AI and collision check using GPU for virtual robots and so on..


What does "RT10連鎖したら全裸うpする" mean

Hi, it is Dr. NISHIO Hirokazu. Today I saw interesting internet meme.

"RT10連鎖したら全裸うpする" is a Japanese sentense. It says "If the post is retweeted and retweeted again as 10 times, I'll upload my naked photo." Unfortunately I don't know who originally posted it.

I think the most difficult part of it is "うp". It is an internet slang. It came from "upload" and its first 2 letters "up" changed into it. "全裸" means "completely naked" and "10連鎖" means "chain of 10 degrees".


An anonymous writer of 2ch, the largest anonymous BBS in Japan found the original post: http://twitter.com/ichitaso/status/6370788497

Unfortunately (?) ichitaso is male. This is a thumbnail of his naked photo:

The original photo on twitpic was already removed. Someone might download and re-upload it, but I don't want to search it.

My friends bought me a girl friend!

Hi, it is NISHIO Hirokazu. My friends gave me a present.

Oh, what's this?

Ta-dah! It is "LOVEPLUS"!!!

It says "National girl friends debut!!"

On the back of package, it says "Pounding your heart for, feeling at ease with and touch to, new life starts!!". Touch to what? It is not written directly but I know, it is my new girl friend!

But I think the novelity of the game is not touch on girls. There is a game more specialized on touch on girls, Doki Doki Majo Shinpan!. It may be "real-time mode" using clock in Nintendo DS. For I just started new life with girl friends, I don't know much. I'll write some entry after.

"You are too obtrusive, you know?" ooh...

ITOYANAGI: our brandnew product

Hi, it is NISHIO Hirokazu. Today I'll introduce our product ITOYANAGI.

It was put on view on last Saturday at Odaiba, Tokyo.

ITOYANAGI is a name of our member, he had arrested and put into mental hospital in 2004. He did cosplay (short for "costume roleplay"; see Cosplay - Wikipedia) and it was disgusting:

Unfortunately there are a lot of crazy (in good meanings! of cource! don't kill me!) people in our team, so ITOYANAGI became 3D model...

The modeller want to stay anonymous. He may regret creating this terrible model.

And...mmm... One more thing!! The model was printed out with 3D printer!

Following 7 movies are how this crazy figure was born. In the last movie you can see rotating figure with ITOYANAGI's song. Be careful to keep your sanity. We are not responsible for your headache.

It's very sexy!

You can see the figure at 3D-GAN in Akihabara UDX 4F now. But ITOYANAGI may bring his metal bat and crush it and the modeller's skull. I want to record the moment as 600 frame per second with EX-F1 highspeed camera. Hehe.
