Comments by Mr. Takashi Yamanaka, Representative Director, LOOVIC Co.

In our lives, economy and technology are becoming more and more developed. While we understand the dangers of people walking while on their phones when moving, we have the problem of losing the naturalness of human behavior itself in having to use such technology. Therefore, by continuing to ask the question, "How can we make use of the naturalness of human behavior?" we have devoted ourselves to the development of technology to compensate for the naturalness of human behavior. That isHuman Augmentation*.

We specialize in technologies for use in smart cities and have developed conventionalUniversal services that compensate for the limitations of spatial cognition used by humans through technology and enable a human-centered society to respond smartly to smart cities.We will provide the following services. First, we will start our business by solving the issues of getting lost, which are common to visuospatial cognitive impairment (developmental disabilities, mild dementia, and higher brain dysfunction), and then we will aim to spread our business in the general society so that it can be widely utilized.
