This is the latest of a series of maglev trains being tested and reviewed for
public release in Japan. This particular train is owned and operated by JR East
(Japan Railway East).
The maglev train is suspended just inches above the track by way of super-
conducting magnets. I was fortunate enough to visit the world expo in Japan
back in 2005 to view a prototype of an earlier model which was on display. It
is quite an amazing piece of technology.

This is Pepper a humanoid robot developed by Japanese mobile phone company
Softbank. It is quite an amazing piece of technology considering it will be
available for purchase to the public in Japan this year,ie it's not just for research.
From what I understand Pepper will be available to the U.S market in the near future.
I for one would love to get my hands on this super cool robot.

I am curently working on a short sci fi novel and hope to publish it on Amazon soon. Being a graphic designer and digital artist, I have always been fascinated by the science fiction genere. I have followed all greats ie, Star Wars series, Star Trek as well as the current hits such as Tron II, Avatar, Ironman and Pacific Rim. My past works have included many sci fi illustrations involving mechs, robots and fantastic worlds. Most recently, I have become interested in moving into manga and comic book art. The works of artists such as Takeshi Obata and many of the art works for Marvel comic series are skillfully and beautifully depicted. I hope to be able to emulate the greats and possibly come up with my own original characters and story lines.
