The history of Hagino Kaori – Familiar Trademark

#trademark

The other day, I bought a sweet called “Hagino Kaori”.

This confectionery is sold by “Mitsukuni Honten”, which has a store in Hagi City, Yamaguchi Prefecture. It is made by chopping the skin of summer oranges and boiling them in molasses. The one I bought was a limited product, available only in the fall from September to November, so it contained sliced unripe summer oranges. It looked and tasted refreshing and was a very good product.

A search on J-Platpat revealed that the trademark “Hagino Kaori (vertical writing)” was filed for trademark registration in 1919 (Taisho 8) and was registered in the same year (Registration No. 107032).
I realized that “Hagino Kaori” is a product that has been carefully inherited for a long time because it has been repeatedly renewed and registered and the trademark right has been effectively maintained to this day. (Sakuramochi)

Muscle Training with Power Ball

There have been less opportunities to do exercise or muscle training, I purchased an easy-to-use training equipment.
It is called a “Power Ball” or “Wrist Ball” and is used by holding with one hand.

It has a double structure of a ball and an outer ball that wraps it, and after winding a power spring to start the ball, turning the wrist to match the rotation of the ball will increase the number of rotations of the ball. , The gyro effect creates a force that causes the outer ball to move. By countering that force, you can strengthen your muscles.

Depending on how you hold it, you can train from your fingertips to your upper arm, but unlike training equipment such as dumbbells, you can train without overloading your muscles. Because it is small, there is no need to worry about the storage space. There is also a function to change the color and emit light according to the number of rotations, and to display the number of rotations and rotation speed.

When I opened the attached instruction manual, there was the word “patent”.

I haven’t seen many products with numbers lined up by country. It seems that 3 cases are registered in Japan. When I searched for Japanese numbers on J-PatPat, all three were registered as utility models. (Syszo)

Empty can satellite

Hello. It’s Swimmer.
I saw the news that there was a lecture of which a camera and a sensor were attached to a can of drinking water, dropped it from the drone, and see if it works properly.
It seems this was a preparation for a high school student tournament, expected to be held in Fukui prefecture in November of this year, where they will compete for the performance of their own artificial satellites.
The gadgets were made with easily available materials, and the experiment site was the school playground. It became a challenge for them to think themselves and make efforts to get the results. It was very fun and interesting news.
Previously, satellites flying from town factories to space were talked about, but I hope that the dreams of young people who look to science that will lead to patented technology that enriches our lives will grow greatly.
