Mirrored TOKYO Will Melt Your Brain (VIDEO)

Mirrored TOKYO Will Melt Your Brain (VIDEO)

The Lovechild of Blade Runner and Inception
We've all marveled (some drool) at the incredible cityscapes of the world's largest city, our home: Tokyo.

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...the result is the latest hit from YouTuber darwinfish105. Once again, he’s delivered a basically unnotwatchable love letter to the metropolis. Do watch.

Mirrored TOKYO is not his only hit, we’ve also featured his GH4 time-lapse video work: GH4 Time-Lapse Video Makes Tokyo a Living Pastel Diorama (See Panasonic GH4 specs & prices from our photography partner Adorama.com)

And his still photography of giant robots is quite fine, too: Pacific Rim and the Legacy of Giant Japanese Robots

Now, those who haven't visited the metropolis might wonder:

"Is it really all that? 
Does it really look so amazing in person?
These Japanophiles are exaggerating, yeah?"

Yes. 
Yes.
Gigantic nope.

darwinfish105 shot this video with Sony RX100 III, their newest high-end mid-range shooter. Here are a few caps, too:

Fujitsu boosts security for multi-service palm-vein authentication system

Fujitsu Laboratories has developed a new identification technology, which enables palm-vein identification to be used securely in a wider range of situations.

Conventional palm-vein identification works by comparing complex vein patterns extracted from images of the user's palm. By contrast, Fujitsu's new technology extracts characteristic components from the vein patterns, and uses them to generate 2,048-bit reference codes which are used for comparison.

iREX Robot Wrap-Up - AkihabaraNews.com

Japan’s premier robot expo is over, and all that remains of iREX 2013 are the things we learned, contacts we made, and the videos, photos, and desperate attempts to effectively communicate the breadth of what exactly went down.

2x3D, developed by the Shirai Lab at Kanagawa Institute of Technology, is a system that lets the same screen be viewed simultaneously by people who want to watch it in 2D and 3D.

Whereas conventional passive 3D systems use polarizing filters for both the left and right eyes, this system uses a special picture-generating algorithm. Pictures for the left eye can be seen with the naked eye and only pictures for the right eye need to be viewed through a polarizing filter.
