Hey everyone! Today I am in Tokyo for the Tokyo Makerfaire. It’s in the convention center so it’s
inside a building not outside. Now let me show you around. I just arrived. So it looks like they are selling some books here. Is this MakeBlock? No. So this is a booth for selling books and T-shirts. Let me see what else they’ve got. It’s quite busy in here, lots and lots of booths. And there is a… This is a soldering booth. Hello! I am going to solder the JLC LED rings I bought with me later. I can only solder them there, if you solder (anywhere else) inside the building is against their fire law. So it seems like they have some programming robots here. It’s called Jetbot. It can avoid the obstacle, kind of like the MakeBlock one I got before. You play it by projecting lights on it. If you project light on it, it will make a sound and stuff I think. Can I try it? Yes, go ahead, try it. Push the button here. Move, move. Oh, I see. Thank you. Interesting. What’s in there? This looks like a small arcade, do they just sell the model or with thier board inside? Interesting. It’s very interesting. A table shape. Instead of an arcade, they made a shape of a table, but you can still play games on it. It’s very cute. I want to get one. Maybe later I will buy one. Is this like a photo booth or something? What are those? Something behind the curtain is kind of like the Chinese shadow play. Looking like shadow play and the puppet can turn around. We can send this product by EMS to Japan. No wonder they know this, he was speaking Chinese to the customer, I was like why do they know these? It’s called Pi Ying Xi in Chinese. This is like lanterns with LEDS. Cotton candy. Are they making food here? I see, looks like food section. Great, I would like some crêpe later. But I already have a big breakfast. AI selection. I think it can tell what kind of beans it is, is it? I see, it can tell the raw beans from the toasted one. How cute it is! It has a conveyor belt. And this part must be 3D printed, 3D printed parts with a conveyor belt, and the aluminum. It is kind of cute, and then they use the vision software to do detection. In fact, it is used to tell the good beans apart from the bad beans. I thought it was used to tell the raw beans from the toasted ones, but no. It is sorting out the good ones and the bad ones. So it can tell if the beans are good or bad. Cool. And what are they making in here? I don’t know what that is. A lot of the food booths they are also very creative. Usually they just only sell food. And this is a booth for R2D2 robot. I lost track, inside is so huge. This conventional center is so huge. Hello! This is the milling machine. Oh, this is from the OpenBuilds, no wonder it looks familiar. Do you know OpenBuilds? I know it, because I bought parts from OpenBuilds and used it on my Barbot project before. Are you Chinese? I am Chinese. Me too. In Japan, I can’t tell us apart because we are all Asian in here. I generally speak English here, because I can’t speak Japanese. And you kind of have the Japanese style, like your hair. Do you sell your product in Japan after you install it? We collaborate with OpenBuilds. We are kind of like a distributor in Japan. We bought their parts and some of their assembled parts and then modified it and sell our version to the customers. How’s business in Japan? It seems ok so far. Do you sell this product on the spot? No, we don’t sell it on the spot. I see. So they have to go to your website to place the order. Yes. Okay, I see. This place is huge. I thought it was like a couple of sections. And this stage is for people to give a speech but they didn’t officially invite me, so of course, I am not on there. That looks kind of like my infinity mirror. Interesting, awesome. I only know two sentences and I did not catch what he said at all. It’s very cool. That is made out of bamboo. So they used the laser cutter to engrave that. So cool, they used bamboo to make something like my writing machine. It uses 3D printed parts and bamboo. Wow. And they used Arduino Uno to control it. Power supply and you can see everything because it doesn’t have an enclosure so you can see how they build it. I really like it maybe I will make one. That guy is taking a lot of posters, don’t know what for Ok, let’s go. It is getting crowded, oh my god. Wow, I like this one. Is this a dragon robot? I don’t know what to think. It kind of looks like a dog pet. Oh, it blows wind, it can blow wind to you. Holy shit. Wow, awesome. Wow, it blows wind, I want one. Naomi. Hi, oh you are here too. Yes, I am here. I thought you guys are not coming to Japan this year. I didn’t know you would come either. Yes. I want this one. It’s called something something lab. Can I get one or maybe I will just make one if I know how they do it. Ok, I like it. Do you sell it? No. I would buy one, I would buy this one because I like it. I sound like a Chinese businessman, do you sell? Give it to me. Donkey car. Here are all robots. Hello, are you a Youtuber? Yes. We knew you. Can I take a picture with you? Of course. Please come to our booth. Oh, you have a booth? Yes. Of course I will go to your booth. So cool, I like it. I can’t go skiing, no matter dry ski or ice ski. I am terrible at it, I am not athletic. Oh, what is this? It is a broom from Harry potter. Harry potter. You know Harry potter？ I see, I know Harry potter. I can not. You need to wear this one. Oh, no. I will probably fall, I am not that athletic. He can show you how. Okay. Oh, I see. Like a three wheels thing. With three wheels I can probably maintain my balance. But only two wheels, no. This is really cool. We made a big one, a small one, and this one, but this one is now being charged. Oh, cool. Okay, one more. Say something. Thank you. Oh my god, my arm is so sore from holding the camera for a long time. My arms are numb, literally. Take the brochure and then make these. Yes, Takasu invited me. One more, maybe one more. Last time we met in Shenzhen, can you take a picture for us? Okay. Have some stickers.
