Bizarre proof-of-concept tech by Dr. Hirotaka Osawa are glasses with small displays that give attention to others around you.

The idea here is that we have technology to help us work in areas such as physical labour and brainwork, but not “emotional labour”, the social face-to-face aspects of job roles. Video embedded below:

From IEEE:

Have you ever had trouble concentrating in the office as people walk by and glance at you? Do you come off as unfriendly or aloof, when you’re really just focusing on your work?

Dr. Hirotaka Osawa from Tsukuba University, in Japan, has developed a new wearable device to help us with something called “emotional labor.” His idea is that people could adopt cyborg technology to increase the emotional comfort of those around us. In this case, the device is a crazy pair of glasses that display eyeballs on their lenses.

The device’s virtual eyes naturally follow people and movement, making it appear as though you’re friendly and approachable, even if you’re too busy doing something else or too tired to actually look friendly and approachable.

"This emotional support reduces a user’s cognitive load for social manners," Osawa says.

Although it’s not clear how or why this song has become such a staple in Vietnam’s New Year culture, a quick search will lead you to a treasure trove of Vietnamese takes on it. This year, the Hanoi Opera House and Swedish Embassy have even played along, with a concert featuring a Swedish band singing ABBA hits. The purpose – ringing in the new year by celebrating Vietnam and Sweden’s diplomatic relations!

More fun facts here
this is a little late, but !!!
vn’s are serious ABBA fans, too, they know the deep cuts

Can history textbooks make peace? →

southeastasianists:

Does a common future mean that Southeast Asia should be able to agree a common past?

Educationalists and historians have been meeting across borders to attempt the seemingly impossible - a common history textbook for South East Asia.

Not only will they have to accommodate diverse countries and a tangle of overlapping disputes, they have to contend with countries wanting to revise their history books to reflect territorial claims.

This ambitious task is taking place within the Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean) group of countries - Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Textbook experts from the region met in Bangkok in Thailand last year to look at the idea of a common history.

"There are still fundamental miscommunications, deeply-held prejudices and emotionally-charged perceptions which we have to overcome," a former Asean secretary-general, Dr Surin Pitsuwan, told the meeting, organised by Unesco (…)"
