The clock is cool and here's a little story

Casio

"If this is not something absolutely original, then this is not CASIO"!

This idea from the very beginning of the company is the main motive in the policy of new developments of CASIO to the present day. But few people know that Casio is not just the name of a famous company that produces watches and calculators, but also the name of a real person. The story of his success is a typical Japanese story, built not on adventurism, but on scrupulous work and personal asceticism. It is these two qualities inherent in Tadao Kashio (Tadao Kashio), turned his company into one of the world leaders in the field of high technology.

Casio experts have long traced the growing interest of the mass consumer to multifunctional portable devices. The company has long gained fame on the quartz watch market, cramming into their miniature case a wide variety of add-ons - timers and calculators, thermometers and depth gauges, MP3 players and compasses. This allowed the company, according to a number of specialists, to successfully survive in the conditions of the toughest competition between watchmakers in the world.

Starting the production of digital time meters, Casio scientists and technicians have made significant progress in the production of microchips with huge reserves of memory. Now, these developments allow Casio almost every month to throw new products on the market - new “fancy” Japanese watches, electronic notebooks, mobile phones.

Starting the production of the first models of its watches in 1974, this company has long been considered a "cheeky impostor" among respectable watchmakers. In the "big leagues" it was not allowed. Only in 1983, the release of the G – Shock series of shockproof watches to the market formed a steady demand for Casio products, and even then not in Japan, but in the USA, where young people interested in sports and tourism liked these massive, rubber-covered protectors, but very comfortable and reliable watch.

Also, these watches were put on the arms of the American special forces "seals". Rush demand in America for Casio G – Shock a short time later, boomerang back to Japan.

To satisfy the needs of young Japanese, Casio even had to re-export for a short time - importing shipments of this product to Japan already.
However, manufacturers of pirated copies were substituted for Japanese manufacturers. China began to produce its own version of the G-Shock, but in a cheaper version. Surprise here is not necessary. At one time, the Japanese watchmakers themselves in a similar manner won over certain sectors of the watch market from the famous Swiss.

The answer to this challenge of China was the transition of Casio masters to the production of multifunctional mobile wrist devices. Watch-audio player (model MP-3), a watch with blood pressure measurement (model BP-120), a watch with a depth meter, an altimeter and a compass are just “ordinary” weapons in this battle. At the same time, Casio offered customers another interesting model - the WQV-1.

This time, a digital camera was squeezed into the watch case, capable of capturing 100 black and white pictures without a diskette. The resolution of the digital camera was not too high (only 28,000 pixels), but probably James Bond would be pleased with such convenient equipment.
However, Casio masters expected to find a demand for their new product not so much for spies, but for a wide youth audience.

Another Casio engineering wonder is a wristwatch with integrated Global Positioning System (GPS) on the map. Space system receiving signals from such a system are no longer a novelty. They began to be equipped with many cars. But for the first time, such a complex engineering device was built into a wristwatch. This new Casio is not cheap. In retail, it costs about $ 500, but its first shipments sent to Hong Kong and London were sold out in a matter of minutes.
The successes of the offensive had to be consolidated, but Casio alone was clearly not enough for this.
The Japanese decided to enter into agreements with the American Microsoft and Sybasc, the British VodafoneAlm - TouchPle. In particular, the British specialize in the production of mobile phones. And with the help of Casio, their "handset" will be able to take pictures and send them by e-mail.

At the same time, Casio developers understand that technological leadership does not always automatically lead to economic success. Probably, not all “tricked out” novelties are destined to become sustainable “hits” of consumer fashion. Others end up as technical nonsense on the shelves of a factory museum. But Casio managers are betting on further development, in particular the Internet, which over time will require easy-to-use portable devices that provide easy access to the network. "Sly" watches are ideal for this purpose. Now, this wind is inflating the sails of Casio watch developers.

Among the main products offered for retail sale by CASIO Computer Co., Ltd, the following main product groups can be distinguished:
- quartz watches - wrist, table, timers;
- calculators: scientific, financial, budget;
- PDA;
- digital musical instruments;
- digital cameras;
