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!

With Thanko's Night-Vision Scope Camera, you can see clearly something that you cannot usually see in the dark.

There is a 7-level adjustable infrared mode to see objects in dark places. A 3X power telescope and 2X digital zoom lens enable you to observe distant objects. Also, you are able to shoot still/moving images with it so that it might be fun to use it on your friends - scare them at night-time and record their reaction!

It is also usable in the day time as well by using the infrared cut filter attached to the body.

ATLAS Robot Unboxing - DARPA Robotics Challenge

Ohhh boy, an unboxing video that’s not just filler, but 500% justifiable.

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.

From Thanko's "Gorone" (means lay down/bunk down) series, a new tablet and smartphone stand to support your smart device for you to use while you lay down was just released.

It's not easy to use a tablet or smartphone while you lie on on your bed. That will eventually give numbness in your arms. But, if you have the stand, there will be no need to hold your tablet or smartphone and then you can enjoy using it for a long time without your arms getting tired.
