Within a mile of New York's main airport, visitors can find cheap deals at JFK Airport hotels - and have cash left over for the rest of their vacations.

As New York City's main international airport, John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) is circled by major chain hotels offering budget accommodations for bargain-hunting travelers. Located on Jamaica Bay in the borough of Queens, JFK Airport hotels are approximately 17 miles east of midtown Manhattan, though easily connected to the city by taxi and public transportation. That distance makes JFK Airport hotels a goldmine for bargain seekers who want to see the landmarks, museums and Broadway shows New York City has to offer without paying sky-high hotel rates in the city center. Though rarely providing luxury digs or amenities beyond the basics, JFK Airport hotels do offer comfortable, budget accommodations for leisure and business travelers, as well as proximity to the airport for early-morning flights.

Catalogue of Crazy Watches from Japan



Everyone knows that Japanese live on their own time. Their culture is alternatively more fast-paced and intense than the rest of the western world (like in urban areas), or more relaxed and introspective (like a Japanese garden).

Knowing these idiosyncrasies, one Japanese company "TokyoFlash" sells absolutely marvelous and really bizarre watches. They fulfill every kind of purpose, except clearly telling the time. A few examples from their catalog:

A steampunk dream come true

Those fabulous Japanese have raised the bar for the laptop technology... again. Not only is this model made out of wood (plus a bunch of original 1930's typewriter parts), but guess what - it actually works, and has all the hi-tech features that you'd expect from a respectable laptop.




"Decotora" Trucks Shine in the Night

What happens if a Japanese truck "dies and goes to heaven?" It becomes one of the glorified "Decotora" trucks! Decorated trucks, vans and semis glow in the night with the million lights, adding to the already incredibly bright Japanese urban landscape.

Everything you always wanted to know about Japan,
but did not know where to ask


1. Giant robot takes care of cars

This blog tracks the news about robotics advances in Japan. One company definitely to watch for is TMSUK, which has quite an impressive line-up of robots for various applications, with some even in use on campuses throughout Japan. The biggest of the bunch is T-52 model:

Is this robot on a mission to seek and destroy improperly parked cars? Certainly the idea has been around long enough:

- Car-wrecking robot from the cover of "Wonder Stories" science fiction pulp magazine from 1935.

T-52 however, is not a nemesis to cars. Quite the opposite:
Pink Tentacle reports:
"This is the giant rescue robot called T-52 Enryu ("Rescue Dragon"). It has a bulldozer-like base and a 5-meter long arms that can lift cars stuck in the snow. In the tests T-52 Enryu showed off its avalanche prevention skills by removing accumulated snow from the edge of a cliff. The robot also demonstrated its ability to extract a car buried under a bank of snow."
T-52 Enryu stands 3.45 meters tall and weighs 5 tons.

Using the rotation of the human pelvis and the free movement of leg-joints as a model, the company has finally succeeded in making a robot that can walk without bending its knees - a first in this field with almost humanlike walking style.
It can climb stairs and carry things weighing 60 to 90kg.
"SHINPO" was developed in a collaboration of TMSUK Co., Ltd. and Atsuo Takanishi Laboratory for a part of the robot exhibition at Niigata Science Museum.
