    1st stereoscopic shooting executed in the south Italy. 16-28/10/2001

    Texnai's first stereoscopic shooting was successfuly executed this fall in the south Italy during the 5th Pompeii shooting mission. At this shooting joined two specialists from Israel that include Prof.Shmuel Peleg of Hebrew University who is developing a software for creating the stereoscopic panorama and Mr.Yaron Leshem, a photographer of Human Eyes. They demonstrated their stereoscopic editor by using a laptop PC, but their ease of shooting and the fast processing were quite impressive. They say that their stereoscopic panorama is unique in the world. We shot a couple of ruins in Pompeii and Paestum located near Salerno, and a few sceneries found in a small traditional town called Ravello located on the middle of the mountains behind Amalfi.

    Why don't you become an owner of Mongolian Goats and Sheep 13-20/03/2001

    Fukazawa visited the Science Academy of Mongolia this March with 3 other peoples to make an interview on their request for ODA program of Japan. It was his 4th visit to Mongolia, but he visited this time a nomadic family that was staying at the winter camp near Ulaanbaatar and became an owner of five goats and one sheep at a couple of dollars. Like most of other Nomadic peoples, they had a big damage this winter for the heavy snow and lost 70% of their animals. Fukazawa purchased those animals for his pleasure, but he is also considering that this kind of ownership might help their economy. Why don't you become an owner of animals in Mongolia and visit to see them glowing and making babies sometimes ? @Contact Takeo Fukazawa by mail.
