Analyzing everything from super-toilets to cute character stationery goods, from Kabuki to manga and anime, from bikes to robots, this visionary book by a leading Japanese strategy expert supplies a road map for the future of international technology and design. The Japanese have leveraged the childlike, feminine, cute aspects of their otaku (geek) culture into top-tier products for world markets. What does this mean for the human/object interface? How can we personalize and pleasurize design? The answers may lie in our entertainments, innocence, and obsessions. Morinosuke Kawaguchi is principal associate director for Arthur D. Little (Japan) and lectures at Tokyo Institute of Technology.
