Behind the apartment’s curtain, a tough guy is boxing, throwing left and right hooks and jabs, and lunging forward, enough to make any passing criminal think twice before breaking in. According to http://(Reuters), Customers can choose to have their shadow man box, do karate or swing a baseball bat. The image is nothing more than a projected shadow, one, a Japanese apartment management company hopes will help protect and reassure women living by themselves. The man on the Curtain, (http://Still in the prototype stage), uses a http://smartphone connected to a projector to throw a moving shadow of a man doing various energetic activities.
The system was developed for security at buildings run by http://Leopalace21 Corp,, said Keiichi Nakamura, manager of the firm’s advertising department. To mix things up a bit, the man can calm down and do more mundane things like wash dishes, http://vacuuming around the flat, even get dressed and http://chill out while playing the guitar.
Queries from the public prompted the company to think bigger and consider offering it for sale. But some people have had doubts about how effective it might be, said Nakamura. In particular, criminals might sooner or later work out that a http://“man behind the curtain” who spends his whole time shadow boxing, actually means a woman is http://home and alone “For that reason we’d like to http://commercialize it once we add variety, such as releasing a new video every day.”
