This is some testing equipment inside Sharp's new LCD plant in Sakai City. The rest of the facility doesn't look quite as ominous though. In fact, it kinda resembles an air traffic center with some robots tossed in for fun.
Eco-friendly is the general theme of Sharp's facility because it's all about creating and saving energy. From the energy-conserving LCD displays and solar panels being produced to the technology being used around the actual factory, Mama Nature's got plenty to smile about here.
Ok, maybe the whole place is a bit eerie with those hallways, but did anyone really think that LCDs would be built in a cheery-looking factory?
