Obayashi releases a video about the Space Elevator

The Japanese construction company Obayashi (remember them?) recently released a “conceptual construction” video about the Space Elevator.  You can view the webpage with the video here.  Actually, there’s no actual construction shown, but it’s a cool video nonetheless.

The webpage is in Japanese, of course, so if that’s not a language you can read, I would recommend you open up this page with the Google browser Chrome and let it translate it for you.  There doesn’t appear to be any audio however, but as I don’t understand Japanese, I don’t miss it.  But some music would have been a plus 🙂 There IS audio – lesson here is to have a headset plugged in AND properly configured. The music is very reminiscent of the Alan Chan video.
