In the project ”Center of Innovation Creation Program(COI STREAM)” of MEXT, desirable form of society and life (vision) are set and innovative studies, whose subjects are specified by foreseeing 10 years after now based on the vision, are progressed. This methodology is called backcast.
The concrete vision of Innovation Photonics Evolution Research Center is realization of “society where close relationships with rich emotions (high presence, reality, and emotion transmission) can be kept,” and “society where health is managed automatically and people can keep young and healthy.”
We plan to study 4 subjects: “remote sharing and replay technology,” “(micro level) biological information measurement technologies,” “human body optical measurement technology,” and “optics-brain interface,” in turn.

Remote Family Love (Remote Reproduction)Even while away from the family, ties can be strengthened by sharing the feelings of “Family.”
Lively Graphy (visualization of biological information)Just by looking at the mirror, you can check your health without any care to do so.
