A resident of Japan under the nickname Shironamazu told on her Twitter page how for many years she noticed an object in the form of a pyramid in her grandmother's house when she came to visit her. At the same time, she did not know about his appointment. Only the other day she found out that it was the air conditioner control panel.
As a result, her message received more than 50 thousand likes. At the same time, the form of the device, and not its function, attracted much attention of users. Some of the commentators have posted their gadgets in a similar shape.
Why this design was popular in the last century, some have come to the conclusion that Japan was somehow associated with Freemasonry in the late 20th century.
However, there were also those who admitted that this was simply due to the fascination with the culture of Egypt and the image of the pyramid.

Japan has created a smart mask with a translator and speech repeater
The smart mask was developed by Donut Robotics, and it is called the C-mask. Under the guise of a seemingly ordinary protective mask, a full-fledged gadget with Bluetooth and voice dialing is hidden. Moreover, the mask is capable of translating speech into different languages!
In addition, the C-mask has a voice relay function via a smartphone. In a pandemic and quarantine, this gadget may be very much in demand, especially in educational institutions and at public events, where wearing a mask may be a requirement. The only pity is that the start of sales is scheduled only at the end of the year and, most likely, the mask can be bought only in its homeland - in Japan. By the way, the price is quite adequate - only 40 $.
