With the visual style of Pinterest, the structure of a blog and the technological expertise of one of the world’s largest information and communication technology (ICT) companies, this is a platform of exceptionally interesting information.
One article reflects on the potential of medical technologies to ease the burden of healthcare maintenance for the individual.

Another article combines a highly advanced study of human behaviour, retail floor plans and simulated shopper traffic which results in strategies for delivering improved business efficiency.
By combining three behavioural logics of shoppers (limitation, assessment and avoidance) in retail stores, Fujitsu Laboratories was able to reproduce all of the actual observed patterns of crowding. This makes it possible to optimize the number and layout of cash registers as well as lane opening and closing times.

Fujitsu has proven its capabilities many times over, but one extremely impressive effort was the contribution which Fujitsu made to the Hayabusa space mission.
Over seven years, the “Hayabusa” asteroid probe travelled to and landed on the “Itokawa” asteroid, then returned to Earth in a 6 billion kilometre journey! The probe was retrieved near Woomera, South Australia.
