Translation konyaku/ Translation Jelly (ほんやくコンニャク, hon’yaku-konnyaku?)
A piece of konjac jelly which enables a person to understand and speak any known language in the universe. The effect begins after the person ingests the jelly, but the duration of the effect is unknown. While the ones Doraemon uses are usually unflavored, in the story Nobita’s Birth of Japan (のび太の日本誕生?), he used one labeled to be miso flavored, suggesting the existence of various flavors, which are more expensive.
Another frequently used gadget, the time cloth has the ability to advance or reverse time depending on which of its two different colored sides are used. When an object is wrapped around with one face outward, the flow of time reverses, causing the object to become newer. When wrapped around the other way, time moves forward, causing the object to become older. It was first used by Nobita to turn old appliances to new appliances to make money, but its uses extend to many other things, such as converting an object back to its starting material, repairing broken machinery, aging or de-aging people, and restoring millions-of-years old fossils. When picked up, of course, the holder does not age, which means the cloth is only activated upon covering an item, hence it can floating over objects with no user and still change the time of objects.
One of the main modes of transportation for the various characters is the take-copter, which combines the words taketombo (bamboo dragonfly, the Japanese name for the bamboo-copter), and part of the word herikoput which means helicopter. The take-copter was also called the heri-tombo in early stories. The device is a propeller attached to a tiny suction cup which can be attached to enable flight. Ever since the first few Doraemon stories, the take-copter is seen attached to the head instead of the waist, similar to a propeller beanie, due to a mishap with Nobita’s shorts. The take-copter has also been attached to objects to enable its flight. One of its disadvantage is its short battery life. Have a build in batteries, speed 80km/hour of 8 hours continous operation possible, if fly slower the battery will last longer. Have some sort of anty-grafity mechanism to blog earth’s gravity. How to use: Just imagine the direction and speed and your thought will transmitted to the mechine. it can move / fly freely. In the first appearence it was called “Dragonfly Helicopter” but after that it was called Take Copter.
The entrance to Doraemon’s time machine is in Nobita’s desk drawer. The time machine looks like a simple platform with a control console, and a clock with five hands overhanging the console. Doraemon is often seen piloting the time machine. Dorami has her own time machine shaped like a tulip, suggesting a variety of models available in the future. The time machine can create an exit in a specific place spatially as well as temporally. An alternative to the time machine is the time belt, which does not change the wearer’s location relative to Earth. The presence of this machine is not known by Nobita’s mother.
This time mechine is invented in 2008. How to use: select the button to chioose the destination time, then check the sensor and start the mechine. The lever in the left is for speed control. This mechine also have the voice recognition, just say the destination and the mechine will start. In the Long Story ” Nobita and the Robot Kingdom” Doraemon make a modification to the navigation mechine so it can also move in time and space (super space).
Size of the time mechine: length: 2.2m, height: 1.28m, width: 1.6m, weight: 538kg.
The mechine need soem time to start.
Dorami also have the similar time mechine: Space Time Tulip.
Fourth-dimensional pocket / 4D PocketThe inside of this pocket connects to the fourth dimension and acts like a wormhole. It is usually shown attached to Doraemon’s abdomen. Doraemon has a spare pocket which connects to the same location. Nobita has used the spare pocket on ocasion, often for mischievous purposes but sometimes for helpful purposes (for example, he used it to save Doraemon on the movie Nobita and Tin-Plate Labyrinth).
