AkihabaraNews on The Kong Show: Top 5 J-Tech & Culture (VIDEO PODCAST)
AkihabaraNews' Editor Reno J. Tibke Talks Tech on The Kong Show Video Podcast
Though we're currently taking a break from producing our own podcasts and video shows, we do dispatch to spread the tech word on others! And this time around, it’s a new format - a kind of noncommittal video podcast.
Radio veteran Kamasami Kong's The Kong Show has morphed from a traditional audio affair into a much shorter, choose your own adventure listen-or-watch video podcast (we cringe at the words “vlog” or “vodcast”). The show is partially subtitled with quips from the hosts, and totally enjoyable whether watched or listened.
In today's episode, Reno brings AkihabaraNews' Top-5 list of the most interesting and popular tech-gadgety and culture stories from the last several weeks at AkihabaraNews - and again, it’s a watch-or-not show; the hosts speak and imagery bounces around, but you don’t actually have to look at their silly faces.
Kong and Reno discuss: Panasonic’s full-color night vision security cameras, Thanko’s USB-powered bento box, our super-dorky barebones Shuttle PC review, the new 3D Hatsune Miku render, and our new TokyoStreetView 4K ultra-HD video series. Have a watch, listen, or both:
The Kong Show is recorded at the open-floor studio at The Pink Cow in Roppongi (which is an excellent venue for almost anything - and they have burritos and quesadillas!). If you’re in Tokyo, definitely stop by!
