Do you know the product “CUBI” ? It was made by my boss, whom I greatly respect, Mr. Akio Kamei. It’s a CUBE box that has BINARY motion. It’s one of the most difficult Karakuri to open. I was impressed by this box, and was determined to create Karakuri. Complex mechanisms and simple expressions produce functional beauty. I’ll create those products.
