Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show 
Okay yeah, admittedly, our run-and-gun, impromptu, low-tech tech show’s half-baked title isn’t all that great - we’ll see about getting it all propered up eventually. And yes, we know it runs pretty long, and we’ll work on that. To be fair, our unexpected special guest, the pleasantly inebriated Mr. Kikuchi, an Akihabara IT worker, added several minutes, but he also added considerable quality.

For this our first venture, we shot in our namesake neighborhood, Akihabara, not far from the Japan Railways Akihabara train station. Future episodes will also be shot at random locations in and around the Tokyo area with the possibility of field trips.

What About This?
Give us your venue suggestions, feedback, criticism, if anyone thinks Reno needs to get rid of that “beard,” corrections, call-outs, tips. If you just wanna make fun of us, we can take it. Trolls with 
flair and originality will receive extra points and a cookie.

Have a watch. Let us know.

Breakdown: EPISODE 1
AkihabaraNews' contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke stand around in very cold and windy Akihabara waxing geeky on the latest tech news. This week, a drunken yet very nice and fairly polite IT worker jumped in to talk about the ills currently faced by the Japanese community, including a loss of social cohesion and some history and some stuff our non-native ears couldn’t pick up. He was a cool guy.

Tokyo Midtown Illumination Animation: Japan is Good at This (VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
From upscale shopping centers to out of the way local grocery stores and business of all sorts (even a few private homes here and there), Tokyo is currently enjoying a very tasteful veneer of light-based holiday spirit. Whether we call them Christmas Lights, Holiday Decorations, or simply, as do the Japanese, Illumination, there’s no doubt that Japan both loves to play the game and is particularly good at it.

REVIEW: Casio G-SHOCK GPW1000 GPS Atomic Solar Hybrid
If you’re reachable by terrestrial radio waves or GPS signals from space, this watch will always be accurate within about 15 nanoseconds or less. And sure, you can pop out the electronic crown with a twist and pull and set the time manually, or just like, you know, pretty much never do that again. Come meet the beautiful hulk!

 

This is an interactive optic fiber cloth. It is made of side-emitting diffusive optic fibers so computer controlled light patterns can be displayed on it, and by attaching light receivers as well as light emitters, optical signals can be input using infrared light.

"Originally, we came across the light-emitting fabric, where light is emitted from the optical fiber surface. Conversely, we thought it could be used to input data by receiving light through the surface. So, we've created this kind of interface."
