VR NINJA DOJO is an entertainment facility that provides “Ninja Experience” fusing the real and virtual world for foreigners visiting Japan. One of Japanese cultures, “Ninja”, is also literally popular as “Ninja” overseas. The facility is designed with the stylistic beauty inherent in Japan and is a space where you can feel the unique perspective of the Japan world. Also, this facility is designed with our own technology so that the third parties who do not wear a head-mount display can enjoy the virtual world as well. So, you can unite and enjoy the experience even when your group consists of two or more people. Furthermore, since we explain the operation completely in English, foreigners visiting Japan comfortably use the facility. Visitors will take the full proficiency examination to be a Ninja master through the VR experience after they had realistic discipline and training by doing physical activities.

Recently, the number of foreign visitors has been on the rise in Japan. According to Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), the total number of foreign visitors to Japan in 2018 exceeded 30,010,000, which is the first time ever recorded over 30 million people and is an increase of 8.7% from the previous year. It is expected that the number of foreign visitors to Japan will further increase by 2020, but there is some change in their consumption behavior. In the past, "entity-oriented consumption" such as purchasing large quantities of home appliances and cosmetics etc. was mainstream. But, as the EC industry has expanded, there is less value in traveling some places in order to purchase goods there. Instead, "situation-oriented consumption" such as taking experience type services including hot spring tours and kimono experiences is on the increase. The new facility in anticipation of the growing inbound demand provides a new entertainment that will definitely become popular among foreign visitors to Japan.

VR NINJA DOJO provides a Ninja experience, which is only available here, with the concept of “The Hospitality of Japanese Culture in both the 'real' and the 'virtual' world."

Key UK SEP Patent Win for TQ Delta20.3.2019 19:03:00 CETPressemelding

TQ Delta LLC, a technology development and licensing firm, secured a judgment on March 18 by the High Court of Justice of England and Wales immediately enjoining ZyXEL Communications UK Ltd and its Danish parent company, ZyXEL Communications A/S, from further infringement of TQ Delta's European Patent (UK) 1 453 268. TQ Delta's patent relates to Digital Subscriber Line ("DSL") technology. In an earlier judgment, handed down on March 12, the Court found that the patent was valid and essential to the operation of ADSL2 and VDSL2. In that judgment, the Court held that the ZyXEL defendants have infringed and continue to infringe the patent. The Court also found that a second patent would have also been essential and infringed but was invalid. In its judgment earlier this week, the Court also found that the ZyXEL defendants were "holding out" against taking a licence to TQ Delta's portfolio of patents relating to DSL. It granted an immediate injunction and costs against the ZyXEL defendants
