Autos of Tokyo Auto Salon 2017 (GALLERY 2)
GALLERY 2 IS LIVE! Smaller parts manufacturers, wheel manufacturers, and companies that did clever things with paint and lighting had some interesting wares on show. Considering the nature of modified cars, that’s really what is most important: giving the owner more options to make their ride their own...Japan Style.

GALLERY 2 of the series, wherein we celebrate the unspoken but clearly known co-stars of Tokyo Auto Salon. In addition to appreciating the subjects of the photos, one should also appreciate that all images were shot on an iPhone 7 Plus. Which is actually rather kind of amazing - look for yourself!

On February 22, 1999, Mari Matsunaga, Takeshi Natsuno, and Keiichi Enoki announced the start of the world’s first successful mobile internet service to a small number of people who made it to NTT Docomo’s press conference in Tokyo...the term "Smartphone Zombie," however, was still a good many years away.

Dyson's 360 Eye Robo-Vacuum Arrives Late, and That is Totally Fine
This is really a high-end home appliance - as a product, more akin to a washing machine or refrigerator than a smartphone - and in this realm, a brand new line being six months late is better than on-time but undercooked. We see here some real competition for the company than currently owns the Japanese market.
TokyoStreetView: Autumn Leaves near Tokyo Tower (4K VIDEO)
Autumn in Shiba Kōen (park), directly adjacent to Tokyo Tower, is a beautiful time of year. The trees surrounding the Zōjō-ji Temple change into brilliant yellow, orange, and red hues.

Meet Saya: the Incredibly Realistic Computer-Generated Japanese Schoolgirl
Saya was gently brought to life by the Ishikawas, a Tokyo husband-and-wife duo working as freelance 3D CG artists. According to the artists, the hardest part was achieving the moist, soft and translucent skin of girls this age. They have big dreams for their beautiful daughter: playing a character in a movie they are self-producing.

Hiroshima Cat Street View (VIDEO)
As you stroll around, you’ll encounter a number of fellow felines and get a ground-level look at the more traditional roads and ways of the city - places too small for cars exactly because so many of them came into use centuries before the automobile was invented.
Sharp Launching Robot Smartphone "RoBoHoN"
A robot-style smartphone "RoBoHoN" will be released in early 2016. It's invented by Sharp and a robot genius, Tomotaka Takahashi. In addition to provide basic smartphone features, RoBoHoN is able to talk, walk, dance, and recognize human faces. It can also become a projector.
App-Enabled Geiger Counter for Smartphones
Okay, we were skeptical on this one at first glance, but these devices do exist: what we’ve got here is a plug-and-play Geiger counter that fits any smartphone headphone jack (iOS or Android - no love for Blackberry until they finally give up and accept their Google overlords). It’s definitely the smallest we’ve ever seen.
