Sunamiya, a paint firm based in Imabari, has created a device that blasts a teddy bear into the air. The bears are equipped with a parachute and flow gracefully back down to earth. You may be wondering where you would use such a random device- wedding receptions. The trend in Japan is to throw teddy bears instead of rice or flowers. The company also produces a paintball marker used to fire paintballs at escaping criminals so they can be identified and captured. The guns will go on sale this month and will be marketed to businesses.
