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

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's RX100 III, their newest high-end mid-range shooter. Here are a few caps, too:

Massive lightning strikes moving train in Tokyo

 

During the summer in Japan, we can sometimes expect a torrential downpour in late afternoon. It's really scary because all of a sudden the color of the sky turns yellow and deafening rumbles of thunder start.   

Today we had a sudden temporary heavy downpour as usual and that reminded us of this currently popular youtube video. Probably many of you have already seen it as it was uploaded about 10 days ago. Massive lightning hit a moving Odakyu train in Tokyo. A part of the train was burnt, but fortunately no one on the train was hurt.

REVIEW: Casio EX-100 High-End Compact Camera [TOP 14 of '14]
On paper, the Casio EX-100 seems the greatest imaging device in the history of our species. It can do things that sound mind blowing for a camera this small and almost too good to be true for a consumer imaging device of any kind. This camera has a list of features so long that, even in the 3 weeks I had to play with it, I couldn’t truly explore every single one of them.

It seems like Sony is going to unveil their new Xperia Z2 (Sirius) at MWC 2014 (Mobile World Congress) which will start on February 24 in Barcelona, Spain. However just before the kick-off of the show, a Youtube video showing a device that looks like the new Xperia Z2 has been revealed.

According to the video, the device looks like it has Android 4.4 KitKat, 4K movie function, and a plugin called "Time Shift Video".

Some of the leaked specs:

OPENCUBE SCOOVO C170 Launch

Way back when, the term “additive manufacturing” described a process little known outside of that industry, and Japan was actually on the forefront of that tech.
