Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show - Episode 2 (VIDEO)

Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show - Episode 2 (VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com

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:

Oh Yeah, Wanna Win this Very Decent SEIDIO iPad Mini Case?

With robots and mechs Japanese designers would love, and hints of a good story, Keloid is a cruel tease of a trailer. British newscasters, robots speaking Russian, all made by a Spanish effects studio; look, can someone, somewhere just go ahead and give these guys movie money already?

Japanese Girl Wins Air Guitar World Championship - AkihabaraNews.com
This year’s winner, nicknamed “Seven Seas,” is a little-known former member of a Japanese air guitar idol group, but she was apparently more than just a pretender. That is to say, most of the cute young girls recruited and/or cajoled into Japanese idol groups are probably more interested in being generically famous than they are in their singing, dancing, or specific (often contrived) talent. This Nanami, however, she seems to really, really wanna rock.

SwitchScience has released the construction kit for a humanoid robot called RAPIRO.

RAPIRO consists of 30 plastic parts, 12 servo motors (2 per leg, 3 per arm, 1 for the waist, and 1 for the neck). Full color LEDs are used for the eyes.

You can assemble the kit using only a screwdriver.
