Technology Perspectives from FujitsuFebruary 18, 2013
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. Currently available technologies which can be applied to the future of healthcare solutions include: barcode, broadband, cloud-based medical records, database, NFC, remote and self monitoring, smartphone and WiFi.

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.

From Our Clients
We were very happy with the development process and the outcome. The objectives have all been achieved, in terms of usability and ease of use in updating the site. You definitely nailed both of these.
Andrew and his team have provided consistently good service and met both our needs and expectations. He certainly knows his stuff and delivers workable web solutions in a highly professional manner.
Service delivery is precisely what was asked, while respecting deadlines and budget constraints. Digital Tsunami are very good value for money, particularly for quick wins without long pre-planning project phases.
I am very happy with my new website from Digital Tsunami.
Not only did they design it, they also created my logo, and gave me valuable advice and professional feedback.
Through Digital Tsunami, my website now looks professional, easy to navigate and (through my customised CMS), easy to update.
Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.
While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
