Capturing the Beauty of Tokyo from High Places 

As we mentioned the last time around, we’ve really fallen in love with this guy’s work. We shared his giant robot photography last year, featured the previous installment of what we're calling the Tokyo Pastel Diorama Series, totally dug his Panasonic GH4 time lapse piece from several months back, and he made our minds go all rubbery with the Inception/Blade Runner lovechild known as Mirrored Tokyo. Well, there's more.

This Edition:
The World Below the World Trade Center Building Observatory 

WTC Building Observatory Tilt Shift was shot from the namesake iconic Tokyo skyscraper, located just offshore from one of Tokyo Bay's farthest-reaching inlets (MAP), and as is evident, the view is amazing - both for the urban landscape and for the shots of beautiful parks and industry underway.

darwinfish105 captured this video with the Sony α7S (Alpha 7S), a camera we recently reviewed and really, really liked (Specs, Prices, and More Details Here). As before, it's an irony that this particular photographic method can makes the world's largest city, its infrastructure, and its inhabitants look like tiny, tiny toys.

Because Tilt-Shift & Time Lapse 
And what is that, exactly? Well, it’s this kind of photography where you tilt/shift a camera’s focal point, and then maybe shoot for a really long time, and then speed it up to lapse the time. Taken from afar, the method makes things look tiny and cute and softens much of the edges and most of the colors.

We know that's is a total cop-out explanation, but come on now - if you really need to know the fine print, then you’re probably a photographer and that means you probably already know. If you’re not a photographer, but still want to know, then you probably should become a photographer.

See how we do that?

Enjoy the video!

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."

At Keio University, the Sugiura Laboratory, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (Faculty of Science and Technology) is investigating various phenomena through analysis and experiment. These phenomena involve coupling between electromagnetics and mechanical dynamics, as well as nonlinear dynamics. Currently, the researchers are focusing on three topics. The first is nonlinear oscillations in superconductive magnetic suspension systems. In such systems, objects are levitated, so energy loss due to friction is very low.

Located a few steps from Tokyo Central Station and just in front of Yūrakuchō Station, the Tokyo International Forum is one of the city’s best known architectural marvels. Designed by Rafael Viñoly and completed in 1996, the Tokyo International Forum is in fact two huge complexes separated by a courtyard where pedestrians and businessmen alike can come for a rest.
