AkihabaraNews is proud to once again join Venture Day Tokyo as a media sponsor. We’re looking forward to the speakers, the pitches, the feedback, and the excellent networking. Jump here for a complete rundown on last year’s event.
Thanko has released a portable device that combines a 5,000mAh mobile battery and 680mw+680mw high-power headphone amplifier for ¥34,800.

Pioneer is going to release an audio system called Stellanova in late December. It was on display at CEATEC 2014 held last October.
Stellanova is able to play back Hi-Res audio files (DSD 5.6MHz, PCM 192kHz/24bit) saved on iPhone, iPad and HDD wirelessly through the dedicated iPhone/iPad application.
Thanko's new miniature camera can be installed anywhere you want.
For example, by attaching it on a radio-controlled plane, glasses, helmet, and even your dog's collar, you can record unique motion movies.
It's able to shoot high-quality 30fps movies (1280×720, H.264 codec) and photos (5200×3900). The motion detection function is perfect when in use as a surveillance camera.
The camera is controllable with the accompanying tiny remote control.
