Panasonic developed a device to stop the increase in falls on the tracks and the problems they cause.

The falls of wireless headphones to the railroad tracks became a real problem in Japan. One of the iconic Japanese companies, Panasonic, seems to have the solution with the development of a specific device to retrieve them, given the difficulty posed by their small size.

Rail service operators in Japan began urging users to be careful with their wireless headphones, after checking a increase in falls to the tracks of these devices.

Between July and September, there were 950 cases of falls in 78 stations from the Tokyo metropolitan area, a quarter of all items found on the roads, as reported in Japan Times.

However, contrary to what happens with other objects, wireless headphones are small and cannot be retrieved with the potholder used by the station workers since it is too small, gravel makes it harder to get them back.

Therefore, in collaboration with railway service companies, Panasonic developed a specific vacuum cleaner for these accessories.

The first tests are being carried out at the Ikebukuro station. So far, the results point to notable improvements in recovery tasks.

The vacuum cleaner has already been successfully tested at the Ikebukuro station, where the East Japan Railway Co. operates.
