I only have one "tops" item to report on today... Japan is known for being at the forefront of technology and robotics, and today we have reached a milestone in humankind's evolutionary potential. Researchers at the University of Electro-Communications in Japan have developed a synthetic posterior that can communicate with humans through physical contact and 'muscle' contraction. 'What's it for?' you may be wondering. Well, I can safely say, this device has absolutely no purpose. Maybe you could file it in the same category with blow-up dolls, the remote kissing device, dating simulations for otakus, or maid cafes. Whatever it's for, it's weird, it's wonderful, it's Japan, so it's tops.
