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.
Sexy cars really don’t require sexy women to accessorize them, but it happens at car shows the world over. What happens much less is a professional photographer intentionally shooting one with nothing but an iPhone 7 Plus. We think you'll dig the results.
A breathtaking buffet for petrolheads and ornithologists clamoring for their eyeful...SHOT ON AN iPHONE! Is the camera in the new iPhone 7 Plus really as good as a real camera? Well, TAS 2017 was a good place to push it. Take a look for yourselves!
Anyone can set up a camera for long exposure shots, but there’s undeniable artistry in choosing one’s subject matter, mastering the composition process, and holding true to a theme; Tokyo, a contemplation of the profound socio-technological complexity of the largest city in human history, delivers an exemplar thereof.
We humans need, or at least want ever more powerful computers - the kind of machines that, one day, probably will power minds far more intelligent and capable than our own. Could Japan's new supercomputer copy/paste the instructions for true, super-human artificial intelligence into a robot? Ummmm...
So...what's the inside line on AIRBNB's current and future prospects here in Japan? Well, it aint't awesome - in fact, here in its second-largest market, some think a giant Japanese hammer is about to crush one of the world's most popular and controversial startups.

A quick jump in to the history of Japanese timekeeping, starting with Emperor Tenji, who got the ball rolling more than 1,300 years ago, all the way up to CASIO, who're keeping the faith and pushing their tech harder and harder. Nice watch - bit of history, bit of tech, and very pretty images.
There are of course legions of non-Japanese anime fans around the world, but just as many find it quite impenetrable; we recently discovered a robotics-focused promotional piece that seemed yet another difficult example...at first, but then the feature turned out to be a very pleasant surprise.
Without any hyperbole, Japan Robot Week is nothing short of amazing, inspiring, and in the truest sense of the word: awesome. This event, held in biennial alternation with the International Robot Exhibition (iREX), focuses primarily on service robotics, including various related technologies and components. Join us!
