Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show 
Our cliché cop-out of a name is still holding strong... it might stick. If anyone's got something better, leave a comment and if we use your suggestion we'll send you a sweet iPhone 5 case from SEIDIO.

Episode 1: Geektastic in Akihabara

Episode 2: Shiny in Shibuya

Episode 3: Shinjuku
This week, AkihabaraNews contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke stood around in beautiful, eclectic Shinjuku waxing geeky on the latest tech news.

Shinjuku, another of Tokyo's cultural and economic hearts, is home to government, world-class shopping, throngs of intriguing weirdos, the world's busiest train station, the headquarters of gigantic Japanese companies, a variety of street performers, scandalous Kabuki-cho, and, what is arguably the best standing-only noodle shop in Japan (top secret). And there's so much more - we'll definitely be going back.

Breakdown:
While visiting the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building's 45th-floor observation deck, our hosts met a lovely young American couple on the last night of a 5-month honeymoon. They consented to an interview, during which it was discovered that they had the exact same Sony RX100 camera as our editor. This of course led to much bonding.

Covered Stories Include:

Do give us your suggestions for future locations, your feedback, your criticism, let us know if Reno should grow back his awful beard, 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. Share. Let us know. Maybe win an iPhone case.

ATLAS is Coming for ASIMO - AkihabaraNews.com

Honda bills ASIMO as the world's most advanced humanoid robot, and taken as a whole, it’s probably accurate to say. But an American robot is catching up, and unless Honda’s got some new tricks (ASIMO X?), ATLAS is going to shove ASIMO aside and take his cookies.

Murata Manufacturing recently unveiled a team of 10 robots called the Murata Cheerleaders, which dance in formation while balancing on top of balls.

The Murata Cheerleaders are Murata’s fourth generation of robots, following the bicycle-riding MURATA BOY in 1991, the second MURATA BOY in 2005, and the unicycle-riding MURATA GIRL in 2008. All of these robots incorporate Murata’s proprietary core technology.

 

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."
