More About the Contributor:
We first encountered Jeremy's Tokyo-based YouTubing in early 2014, and as he progressed, we became more and more interested in and appreciative of his quirky, funny, dare we say ‘French’ perspective (yeah, we dare).

TokyoStreetView: Odaiba (4K VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
Odaiba is much more than the beautiful Rainbow Bridge, and its current form has been shaped since the 1990s with the construction of major commercial outlets along with residential and leisure areas. These include the famous Fuji Television Building, the Miraikan, Tokyo Big Sight, Aqua City, the Panasonic Center, the Museum of Maritime Science, the MegaWeb, Sega Joypolis, a Gundam statue, and finally a stunning onsen, the Oedo Onsen Monogatari Hot Springs.
REVIEW: Casio Selfie-Cam (Me, Myself & I)

The Casio EX-TR35 is a peculiar beast...
Were you to look at the specs, you’d see a 12 megapixel 1/23 inch backlit CMOS sensor mated to a 3.8mm (Full frame equivalent of 21mm) lens in a small, but not particularly impressive, plastic body.

Bandai is now accepting orders of a life-sized R2-D2 speaking figure doll (Model: D WALL FIGURE STAR WARS 1/1 R2-D2) . You can get your own R2-D2 only for ¥34,800.
