On Friday, June 12th, I woke up at six o’clock and no wonder, it was my birthday. But of course I was not allowed to get up at that hour, so I had to control my curiosity until a quarter to seven. Then I could bear it no longer, and went to the dining room, where I received a warm welcome from Moortje (the cat).
Soon after seven I went to Mummy and Daddy and then to the sitting room to undo my presents. The first to greet me was you, possibly the nicest of all. Then on the table there were a bunch of roses, a plant, and some peonies, and more arrived during the day.
I got masses of things from Mummy and Daddy, and was thoroughly spoiled by various friends. Among other things I was given Camera Obscura, a party game, lots of sweets, chocolates, a puzzle, a brooch, Tales and Legends of the Netherlands by Joseph Cohen, Daisy’s Mountain Holiday (a terrific book) and some money.

Asia News Network (The Yomiuri Shimbun), Sci-Tech. Japanese researchers have developed a robotic system that can convey the sense of touch-including temperature, hardness and texture-from a robot to human hand. The system was developed by Susumu Tachi, a special professor at Keiko University, and his development staff.
The user wears a helmet with a monitor display, a vest and gloves that can receive the ‘sense of touch’ of fabric and objects grasped by the robot. The vest transmits information about the wearer’s position and posture, while the gloves recreate the sense of touch and temperature of the object.
When the user tries to touch an item displayed on the monitor, the robot grasps the real item and transmits data about its temperature and hardness.
As the robot has a number of sensors on its fingertips, the user can even feel the vibration of marbles in a glass container and detect differences in the fee.
