Planetarium Projector
[Cosmo Leap Sigma]

<Evaluation>

At planetariums, the structure of the projector defines its appearance. The mechanical elegance that this one emanates - from its optical design and overall precision - is truly beautiful. As its movement simulates the apparent movement of stars in the night sky, perhaps children can infer that just as the planetarium is an orderly place with precision instruments, the cosmos itself is an orderly system.

Good Design Award

Body Odor Detector
[Kunkun body]

<Evaluation>

In recent years, so-called 'smell harassment' caused by body odors has become a social problem. However, it is difficult to detect one's own body odors, and people hesitate to ask others about their own odors. This device solves this delicate problem by enabling users to recognize their body odors in numerical scores and objectively decide whether they need to take action to reduce their odors. By measuring body odors, this device gives users more confidence and reduces anxiety about body odors. The jury highly regarded this product for its novelty that reflects today's needs, as well as its easy-to-carry design.

Diagnostic Ultrasound System
[SONIMAGE MX1 / SNiBLE yb]

<Evaluation>

The jury highly evaluated this product for its usability in so many medical settings and wondered why such a product had not been available before. The jury was particularly impressed by the successful development of a diagnostic ultrasound system that is more compact, sophisticated, and safer and easier to use than preceding models for medical professionals and patients.

Display Color Analyzer
[CA-410]

<Evaluation>

The simple and functional design of this product conveys a sense of high measuring accuracy. The data processor is far more compact than that of preceding models and the device is highly portable. Both the data processor and the probe are black, which gives this optical measuring instrument a sense of unity. The neat alignment of the probe connection terminals on the back is also impressive. The highly-legible original font and well thought-out user interface design, as well as the simple operation thanks to the automatic zero calibration function, help streamline the measuring process and increase efficiency at factories. For these reasons, the jury concluded that this product is well designed to meet the needs of developers of ever-evolving high-resolution displays.

Planetarium
[Konica Minolta Planetarium "Tenku"]

<Evaluation>

While renovations usually focus on upgrading equipment and refurbishing the space, the renovation of TENKU focused on introducing 3D audio effects and the latest projection systems, and making the planetarium show more enjoyable. This fact was highly appraised by the jury. The change from the sky at dusk to the starry night sky reflects the concept of TENKU, Magic Blue, allowing visitors to not only appreciate views of the starry sky, but also enjoy stories and learn about the stars. The company has succeeded in adding new value to the planetarium experience.
