Airsoft Toothbrush (VIDEO)

Airsoft Toothbrush - AkihabaraNews.com

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.

Several centuries before Ginza became synonymous with luxury, it was actually a swamp. Only after a major fire in 1872 that burnt down most of the larger area did the Meiji government decided to rebuild it into a model of modernization!

We’ve been in love with Team Skeletonics’ human-powered exoskeleton for years, and all throughout, it's pretty much been the same mechanical and aesthetic configuration. But it now looks like they’ve been refining in the background, and might be bringing something new out to play.

Mirrored TOKYO Will Melt Your Brain (FLASHBACKERY)
The contiguous urbanization, beginning at Tokyo Bay, crawls westward and disappears beneath the sky, farther than we can see - not only by distance, but also due to the basic curvature of the earth. It’s just that vast. Okay, now double that. Twist and turn. Reflect. Go upside down and merge it all together in a videographic collage...

Tokyo Skyline Pentax Time Lapse (VIDEO)
YouTuber moeru maruyama's work is quite different from most of darwinfish105’s in that, while it is time lapsed, it’s not tilt-shifted, and the music is much more minimal - but it’s just as beautiful and awe-inspiring.
