Opening day of the live-action movie Kiki’s Delivery Service is just around the corner! It will be released on March 1. Ahead of opening day, an event for the movie took place at Hanazono Shrine in Tokyo today.
In the event, Fuka Koshiba, who was cast as Kiki, showed up from the sky over the shrine riding on the broomstick, dressed in full costume!
It made for great viewing and interesting news. She was being hauled 15 meters above the ground with a crane - and was reportedly insured for one hundred million yen (about $1,000,000).
Smallish, economy cars - the A-segment - are often one associated with youth, playfulness and fun. With performance and accessories often kept to the Spartan side of things across the market, styling is one place where makers can set themselves apart from the competition.
Toyota Europe’s upcoming AYGO takes a specific tack:
Logicool is going to start selling the Wireless Mouse Performance Combo MX 800 on February 28, which is a set of a thin, illuminated keyboard and a mouse. By setting the single accompanying receiver to your PC, you can control both the keyboard and mouse.
If you get these separately, the keyboard is ¥11,980 and the mouse is ¥13,800. However, if you buy them together as a set, it will be only ¥17,800.
Solar digital watch, Alpinist, will be released from Seiko's sports watch series called "Seiko Prospects" on March 8. Alpinist was created under the supervision of alpinist, Mr. Gota Miura.
Cleans our Many Screens
There are some in this world who don’t mind the build-up of funk and finger grease and potato chip crumbs on their smartphone or tablet screen, and then there are the sane people who like to keep things tidy and usable. This is for the latter.
Sony has just announced that they are going to release the flagship model HDR-AS100V of their digital HD video camera recorder Action Cam series on March 14.
NTT docomo is going to release a new mobile Wi-Fi router with 3-inch LCD touch panel - Wi-Fi STATION L-02F - manufactured by LG Electronics Japan on February 22.
Wi-Fi STATION L-02F supports their ultra-fast LTE service Xi (down 150Mbps, up 50Mbps), and GSM/GPRS as well as 3G network for international roaming.
Since it has a 3600mAh built-in battery, it is capable of running continuously for 13 hours with an LTE connection.
