Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show 
We're still kinda working on that title - suggestions are welcome! Episode 2 does shave about 8 minutes compared to our first outing in Akihabara, and it's still packed with dorky goodness. Both fortunately and sadly, the absence of our drunken friend, Mr. Kikuchi, was really the key to keeping Episode 2 manageably watchable in the time department.

This Week - Win an iPad Mini case!

So Like, What About This?
For this our second venture, we shot in one of Tokyo's, in fact, one of Japan's most iconic neighborhoods, Shibuya. While we were mostly stationary for Episode 1, this time we bounce around to several locations. 

Do give us your venue suggestions for future locations, your feedback, your criticism, let us know if anyone thinks Nayalan doesn't look nearly hardcore enough to be into death metal, any 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 2
AkihabaraNews' contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke stand around in iconic Shibuya waxing geeky on the latest tech news. This week, we shot in several locations: just outside the train station, whilst traversing the giant "scramble intersection," and in a few nice spots on nice narrow streets.

Covered Stories Include:

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."

TokyoStreetView: Todoroki Valley (4K VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
An environment unique to Tokyo, Todoroki Valley is a simple walking trail adjacent to the Yazawa River and surrounded by a very dense forest that totally shields it from Kan-Pachi Dori, one of Tokyo’s busiest roads. While the Todoroki Valley’s 1.2 km walking trail is pure bliss, it’s only at the end of the voyage that you can discover yet another hidden wonder: the Todoroki Fudo Temple. Here you can enjoy some delicious mochi (Japanese rice sweets) and ramune (Lemonade), and you have the option to let the gods hear your prayers and wash away your sins.
