Thanko - Fingerprint authentication mini camera

Thanko released a finger authentication mini camera for those who are very sensitive about protecting the privacy of their photos and videos.

The body is smaller than palm-size (91.2x34x12.8mm, 37g), but the camera is able to shoot photos and videos in reasonably good quality (Photo: 1600x1200, 2MP - up to 40,000 pictures; Video: 640x480, 30fps - up to 300 minutes) or work as a voice recorder for a maximum of 960 minutes. It's also usable as an 8GB built-in flash memory, and a 32GB microSD card can be used when you need additional capacity.

To check the data saved in the camera, the finger authentication is definitely required, so there is no need to worry about somebody else peeping on the data inside. Since a maximum of 10 finger prints can be registered and saved for the camera, it can be shared with up to 10 people as well.

Why Would a Wristwatch Shoot HD Video? It’s a more than fair question, but asking why Thanko does what it does is practically anathema to their entire business model.

The Days of Cold Bento Food are Over!
"Bento" is now a common word around the world, so many of you might know that bento box means a Japanese-style lunch box.  Wouldn't it make you happy if you can eat a warm homemade lunch anytime you want without using a microwave oven?

From Thanko's "Gorone" (means lay down/bunk down) series, a new tablet and smartphone stand to support your smart device for you to use while you lay down was just released.

It's not easy to use a tablet or smartphone while you lie on on your bed. That will eventually give numbness in your arms. But, if you have the stand, there will be no need to hold your tablet or smartphone and then you can enjoy using it for a long time without your arms getting tired.

It's getting steadily hotter in Japan. I will need to start using the air conditioner throughout the nights soon, but because the air comes from the air conditioner is too strong, I know that constantly leaving it on makes my body feel sluggish

Akihabaranews.com - Thanko Niko-Ichi-Gasa Umbrella

It looks like 2 umbrellas, but it's just a single strong umbrella!

A huge umbrella, Niko-Ichi-Gasa, that looks like 2 umbrellas got attached was released by Thanko. It's obviously big so that it will be easy to use together with somebody else and you can avoid the situation where either of you gets soaked.

Also, because it features a design that covers the sides, you will be protected from diagonally wind-blown rain.

Ride a bicycle and gain additional benefits!

Thanko's new Portable Wind Turbine Generator will make you feel lucky every time you ride a bicycle or motor bike.

Once you ride a bicycle or motorbike that has the portable wind turbine generator attached to the handle, it starts generating enough electricity for 2 size AA rechargeable batteries.

Putting little spy cameras in eyeglasses is nothing new, to be sure, but doing it with thick, feminine-ish black hipsters frames with two front-facing, identical 2mm holes on each side that allow the camera’s lens and mic to just sort of blend into the overall design, well that's somewhat novel. We love Thanko so much.

Screw-on Strap/Lanyard Bracket for iPhone
Bulkier iPhone cases have long offered this functionality, the iPhone itself has not and probably never will. Since Japanese consumers like the feature, and the iPhone is the best-selling phone in Japan, with typical shrewdness Thanko swooped in and solved a problem we were barely aware that we had.
