Japan is a screamingly safe place, but things do of course get stolen. Until now, that has meant using combination or key padlocks of some sort - both of which function on a fundamentally forgettable opening mechanism. Now your digit of choice is the key, and the pattern of your parts the combination.
Until the nerds figure out a reasonable way for us to not need cables for charging stuff, a fashionable bracelet that doubles as a Lightning cable is at least a viable alternative. As long as you can live with tertiary pastel colors, dude.
The arm rack can be mounted on any desk or hard surface (bed frames, kitchen/coffee tables, etc.), and the arms are fully articulable in basically all degrees of freedom. The smartphone clamp can accommodate all but the largest smartphones, and the tablet rack can fit almost any-size device in landscape orientation.
Putting little spy cameras in eyeglasses is nothing new, to be sure, but doing it with thick, feminine-ish black hipsters frames with two front-facing, identical 2mm holes on each side that allow the camera’s lens and mic to just sort of blend into the overall design, well that's somewhat novel. We love Thanko so much.
Japan’s been using those little mini-dynamo generators to power bike lights for decades, and that doesn’t require a whole lot of power. Charging a smartphone or GPS guide thingy is a different matter, but it seems that Thanko has found the answer.
Thanko's new smartphone case, the "Sumaho Touch Bag," can keep small belongings such as cards and coins together in the same compact place. Wallet with phone pocket, or phone case with built-in purse: you decide!
Akihabara-based company Thanko's new simplified projector for smartphone called "Sumaho de Theater" allows you to make your room a home theater at a reasonable price with no bulbs, no noisy fans, and no electricity.
It's hard to take a photo of an object from above at your desk as holding a smartphone or digital camera in your shaky hand. Thanko's new smartphone arm stand holds a smartphone tight and take a clear photo quickly and easily.
Thanko released a palm-sized full HD drive recorder with a a 1.5-inch LCD display. It's a small device so that it is hardly noticeable in your front windshield view. It's able to shoot 1080p full HD video and shoot clear video in a dark place using the built-in 12 IR lights.
