NTT LTE-A: How You Like Them Dumplings?

NTT DoCoMo has followed up its epic tempura shrimp cannon cooking 4G advert with one extolling the virtues of LTE-Advanced using super-fast flying dumplings.

The point of the spot is to show off the radio-channel bonding capabilities -- also known as carrier aggregation -- of LTE-Advanced. This allows NTT DoCoMo Inc. (NYSE: DCM) to offer a dual-band "Premium LTE" service with maximum download speeds of up to 225 Mbit/s. (See Why You Should Care About LTE-Advanced (Eventually).)

But let's face it, you don't care about any of that. You just want to see how they make dumplings from scratch by shooting the ingredients from a cannon, don't you? Well, here you go:

Oh, and in case you missed the shrimp spot. (See NTT's 4G: Faster Than a Speeding Shrimp?)

Next up in the 4G airborne food cooking challenge is a fried egg and noodle dish. Can't wait!

Re: Dumpling cannon
If this doesn't convince poeple of the spicy speed of the LTE Advanced, anything will. :D I loved the flying shrimp as well.
