Airsoft Toothbrush (VIDEO)

Yes, That is Correct:
Airsoft Toothbrush

In the Mostly Accurate Stereotypes of the World Handbook (really wish that was a thing), modern Japanese people aren't normally correlated with the made-for-anti-terrorism Glock 18c fully automatic handgun, so this video can seem a little unsettling in the first few frames. But don't worry, laugh yourself over that fairly quickly. 

And about that, see, cops have guns here in Japan, and while it is legal, possession by private citizens is rare (requires navigating a nearly impenetrable licensing process). But, Airsoft is hugely popular, and shops stocking full-on arsenals & ammo are relatively easy to find.

Airsoft even gets folded into an otaku cocktail at places like Akihabara's combined maid cafe/shooting range, Friendly Fire.

Habitual
There is pretty much zero information available on the guy who made this video, but we do know this isn't the first time tokioFN has explored compressed-air-powered, pellet gun-based oral hygiene. Yeah, there are more - with larger guns, too.

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."
