Suitcase with Built-In Desk for Digital Nomads & Other Officeless Professionals
It could be a perfect tool for your business trip if you are workaholic...or just part of the new professional economy centering so much about creative yet mobile professionals. So many of us (including Aki Editors) seldom need an office proper. This has appeal!
The Foldable Samurai Umbrella is not Your Father's Samurai Umbrella
Thanko released two dorky sword-looking umbrellas. One's for getting your foldable ninja on, the other is probably much more at home in an episode of Game of Thrones - just in time for the J-rainy season!
Terrie's Take - AkihabaraNews.com
Terrie’s Take is a selection of Japan-centric news collected and collated by long-time resident and media business professional Terrie Lloyd. AkihabaraNews is pleased to present Terrie’s learned perspective; we all could use another take on the news - here’s Terrie’s:
Nike released 3 new Nike AirMax models from their Kabutomushi Collection. These models were designed in the image of Kabutomushi that means Japanese beetles in English.
Red, blue, and green color 23-inch TV models, manufactured by Orion Electric, will be released soon by Doshisha. They're trying to pass them off as "TVs for Girls," and we can see that.

Thanko - Shoulder bag with pop-up tablet holder - AkihabaraNews.com
If you have the guts to ignore what people around think about you, Thanko's shoulder bag with a pop-up tablet holder inside would be a useful tool to use a tablet, especially on a busy train or with an umbrella in your hand.

Thanko has released electrothermal heated gloves to eliminate the chill of hands during outdoor activities on cold winter days.

They are powered by a 9V battery and get warm quickly in about 30 seconds. There is an On/Off button so that you can turn it off when not needed and save power.

audio-technica is going to release new headphones with fluffy earmuffs - ATH-FW55 - on October 17.

ATH-FW55 is designed for girls. Since the earmuffs are big, they make the user's face smaller, which Japanese girls consider attractive and care a lot about.

The item will be produced in limited quantity.
