Rinnosuke Presents
Useless Modern Tools
Part 1: Tablet


Kourindou shopkeeper Rinnosuke Morichika uses his abilities to showcase the latest items!


The paperweight with a primarily black color known as the "smartphone" is popular among outside goods maniacs, but the product I would like to showcase today is the large-scale version of the smarphone: the "tablet".


While the tablet is heavier than the smartphone, its size makes it harder to use as a paperweight. Through my ability, I can understand that the purpose of the tablet is "a tool that can represent most things that can be represented with a surface of the screen size", but in Gensokyo, no matter what I do, it doesn't seem to be anything more than just a black plank, so I wanted to know more about its original purpose.


And so I tried throwing it. Compared to throwing the smartphone, the tablet was able to reach a greater distance and more revolutions due to its size and weight. If you think of it as having injurious capabilities, it could potentially be used as a shuriken.


Then, I tried using it as tableware. When I placed some fruit on it, the reflective black surface made the fruit stand out, giving off the feel of a modern flat dish. I would also recommend this.


Furthermore, one could make good use of its reflection by using it as a mirror. Because it gives a darker reflection, it may make you less concerned about stains and dirt.


Other options could include a small kneeling cushion, a blackboard that is hard to write on, a sled, a pot stand, a weight stone... Certainly, with a surface of this size, it is a tool that can represent many things.


Though it is a tablet like this, I have recently been able to find a large number of them. The fact that they have drifted into Gensokyo means that they are tools that have almost completely fallen out of use in the outside world, so despite it being one of the latest products, it is easy to get your hands on one. Apparently, the reason seems to be that the model is outdated. The outside world does not appear to have the concept of recycling and reusing the same products, so when a new model comes out, people will replace their old models, even when the function is almost exactly the same. In particular, this trend is common for smartphones and tablets.


Well, thanks to that, the number of goods in Kourindou increases as well. If you want all-purpose flat-surface tablets, they're a bargain right now.
