Hematopoises?

I’ve noticed when I’ve been looking at the “machine translations” of Japanese hobby shops, that passenger equipment is described as “hematopoises.” What is that? Is it a weird translation of something?

Do you have a link to an example to one of these translations?  Off the top of my head it might be a translation mistake when its supposed to mean "add on set" but I can't say for sure without an example.

I concur.

"Hematopoiesis refers to the process leading to the continuous production of blood cells during life. In the bone marrow, it implicates rare hematopoietic stem cells capable of self-renewing and progenitors which expand and differentiate into diverse lineages."

yes, I see (or used to see) this all the time on amazon.co.jp.  Also on ebay.   I've always assumed it was a mixed up machine translation.  Similar to KoKi sets which usually get translated to NSFW act names.

 

ETA:  now on Amazon, as I try and find one, they all now say "extension set"

Thanks for the explanation. A lot of these translations are really goofy, but it’s my understanding that Japanese has some significantly different usage rules and that’s sure to trip translation.

Being vaguely aware of this term from histology, I've always been baffled when I saw it on HobbySearch. I figured maybe it was some parallel train meaning. Well, now I know it isn't.

 

A slight aside if I may. I've always been a bit confused by our use of "prototype" here, meaning "the real thing". I always thought a prototype was a kind of test model made to try out a new design before it goes into production.

You can always try your luck with archetypeoriginal, or life/real size train to add some flavor and variations, but prototype is correct.

You're going to see me pepper all the above into my discussions here from now on.
