Digital Eye Wars (Just Looking)

I ran across this last week and bookmarked the website. In Japan, the name give to someone that is extremely anti-social is hikikomori. About 80 percent of the hikikomori are male, some as young as 13 or 14 and some who live in their rooms for 15 years or more. A japanese company has come up idea to sell to this niche market and it very simple, cute girls staring right at you.

Some people say it's weird, it a fab, or wtf? But I think it is pretty cool. It is actually a tool that I think every social artist should take advantage of (at least the free videos). It's kinda like Carlos Xuma's, "Stare down the Bunny" exercise.

You can check it out here (It's in Japanese, just click on the videos that have an eye icon): Just Looking
