1) The oranges and reds and yellows of Fall near Tokyo Tower; 2) Dyson finally unleashes its autonomous home cleaning robot on the Japanese; 3) The Japanese Star Wars trailer you were looking for; 4) The place in rural Japan where Totoro lives; and 5) Electronically stabilize your action cam, son!
Solar-Powered Motion-Sensing Strobing Screech Alarm (NOVEMBER THANKO ROUND-UP PART 3 OF 3)
Set this bad boy to 1. Eagle Screech, 2. Dog Bark, or 3. Gun Shot (the three alert sound options), crank the volume up to 10, and sleep well knowing that flashing lights and obnoxious sounds will keep your trash safe and unmolested.
USB-Powered Heated Office Gloves (NOVEMBER THANKO ROUND-UP PART 2 OF 3)
If you’ve got a USB power source, you can keep your fingers warm. Good for typing, smartphone use, and of particular indication for those with poor circulation in the extremities - for whatever or whenever one can imagine needing warm, non-numbed-by-cold fingers.
Wearable or Mountable 3-Axis Gimbal for Action Cams (NOVEMBER THANKO ROUND-UP PART 1 OF 3)
Almost by definition, getting action shots is a shaky-can’t-be-helped scenario. Sure, clever editors can tone down the vibrations and herky-jerkiness in post, but why not cut down on that from the jump? ...so to speak.
TokyoStreetView: Yamanashi Iyashi no Sato Village (4K VIDEO)
Iyashi no Sato was a village formally located near Lake Saiko, in front of Mt. Fuji. It was only in 2000 that some former villagers, along with the the city hall, decided to rebuild the place into a magnificent open air museum. It is a really nice little village that needs to be visited if you are traveling around Mt Fuji.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (JAPANESE TRAILER)
There’s quite a bit more BB-8 (that’s because cute sells in Japan). We see more of supposed villian Kylo Ren and his rickety light saber (combined with that beat up, patchwork helmet, we’re starting to think this guy’s really into recycling). Two main characters, Rey and Finn, actually introduce themselves here, too
Tokyo Motor Show Gallery #2 (CARS, CUPHOLDER ROBOTS, SELF-DRIVING GERMAN SAUSAGES)
We now present an inline gallery of 30 “snapshots” from Editor Wordnerd. These below are a mix of RX100 and iPhone 6s Plus shots from the massive Tokyo Motor Show - one of the top 5 auto events on planet earth. And hey, which is better: Gallery #1 from Captain Cameranerd, or this one, from Princess Snapshot?
Tokyo Motor Show Gallery #1 (CARS, LADIES, LONG POTATOES)
It's huge. It takes over the entire Tokyo Big Sight Convention Center. Each years sees just under a 1,000,000 attendees over the course of 10 or so days. If you can ignore the throngs of douchey psuedo-journalists facing their imminent extinction, the Tokyo Motor Show is a blast!
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. It is truly beautiful, and we hope you enjoy this scenery, a beautiful place in the heart of Tokyo, as much as we enjoyed filming it for you.
