u don't scare if the clip break or the pants break ？(・・?)
What games do you play on the vita?

이건 좋은 아이디어로군요!
By default all Smart Dolls come with jeans which allow you to carry them around like this.
I am currently in Japan right now and will be here for years. Hope can visit your office ^ ^ or if got chance then work part time at you there >.<
At first glance, it looks like paper bag strapped to the back XD
That is a bit sad that Miim was shut down ... though it might be more that they had gone as far with her as was practical with that design.
I noticed in the HRP-4 link you provided, that robot had functional hands ... which Miim did not have ... and I can see where that would be a major upgrade to a design because of everything that would be involved.
We might see a new project like Miim starting up ... a "next generation" model maybe ... because the Japanese government is getting into the picture and wants to put more money and focus on humanoid robotics projects:
from the Japan Times newspaper
"Japan’s robotics revolution gets a reboot as nation aims to regain lead in ¥3.4 trillion industry"
I can see what you are saying about the "focus on the real work" ... yes they want to push ahead in those areas ... as those will be serious "worker" bots that will be able to function at least close to the way humans do in some jobs ... but we might also see a more human looking bot project because in other articles in the Japan Times there is also a need for humanoid bots to do jobs such as working with the elderly ... where a more human looking bot would be preferable to one that looked more "mechanical"
I understand what you are saying about full sized bots being difficult to keep balanced, and the possible danger/damage that can happen if they fall over ... with as easy as it is for us humans to fall down ... I can easilty understand the difficulty of developing a really robust stabilization system for full sized bots
... yeah ... at 120cm a bot that sized wont damage as much if it does fall over ... Danny listed the weight as 16.5kg for his Smart Doll Plus ... I can guess that her weight will probably go up to between 20-25kg once all the components are installed ... which would be easy for a human to lift back up if she fall down, and not as much risk of damaging either herself or anything else.
That I remember, Miim's weight was listed at 45kg ... which is about comparable to a human of the same size.
You carry this around all the time ?^^
but it'll be hard walking around in a crowd
Prevent droopy backpack syndrome with these easy steps > http://www.dannychoo.com/en/post/27293/Brooks+Pickwick+Review.html
How to prevent your backpack from drooping with this easy trick.
I ended up going with two (well three really) wallets for my last trip to Japan.
In NZ you can pay for just about anything anywhere with your bank card so the Machine Era wallet I got is perfect, bank card, Driver's License and credit cards is all I need on me.
In Japan I need to carry cash so I bought the thinnest wallet I could find that fit the Japanese bank notes and a coin purse to handle the shrapnel.
It worked out fairly well in my opinion. Still had the Machine Era wallet on me with the cards in it.
Just don't forget you have a lens in the bottom of your bag and go dropping it.

If you're designing wallets, can you also design wallets with chains? Or maybe something that can connect your wallet to your pants like a strong string (to prevent pickpockets from snatching your wallet).

Very Nice bag! Awesome review Danny!
Putting her in a bag like this is oddly cute!
Heh heh, nice idea Danny!
I like this image here. XD
YOINK!!! Gonna use this pic for an inspirational reference... ^^
City scenery is good and all, but some nature would be great, I think.
Wow I am truly impressed and very inspired. :) I love all that you said in the end and I plan to do things to take charge and exit this comfort level I'm in. You are AWESOME!
Unfortunately, HRP-4C Miim project has been closed.
It's very hard for the government project to keep developing such a girl robot after Fukushima disaster.
So, now they focus on the real work.
Real life size robot is very difficult to keep the position anyhow, so, the researchers are using a big metal frame and Hoisting tools to keep the robot still standing when the power is off.
120cm size robot like ASIMO, pepper and Smart Doll Plus is rather easier to handle, however, still very dangerous when they fall down.
Heavy weight can cause more damage to servo gears than 1/3.
I have Robi (34cm, 1kg) on my desk, but still there's a risk to break the gears when he falls down. (Robi has a daisy chain servo system with rotation angle feed back, but no stabilising algorithm i.e. 3 axis gyro sensors on the PC board are not used. He changes his postures by just programed still data all the time, so he falls down very easily.)
I was able to see that Rosen Gepetto vid, and that linked to a few others that he posted
... he has the upper body movements to a point where they are pretty nice
... in all the vids I watched the feet movements are the problem ... the dolls do not move their feet very much, and do not appear to lift their feet off the floor
... in one vid it looked like he had put some sort of soft cushion-like material on the bottom of their shoes that would allow the doll movement to flex a bit more since the cushioning material would "give" in the direction the flex was being done
I was not trying to say that Marika was a 1960's toy ... just that her walking movement looked like that
sadly I am not able to read Japanese ... so I was not able to understand the link you sent me about the technical details for Marika, and the link about the stability control system ...... sorry
it IS getting interesting, to see what is being done with making doll size robots ... and it will be very interesting to see what finally makes it on to the market as a commercially available doll/robot

This caught my eye at the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco today...
Good for you bud, congrats on your success.
I am soooo waiting for Chitose to be made into a SmartDoll! <3 I really love her lab coat outfit too. =)
Are there any official retailers or places where we can buy Mirai in Tokyo (or elsewhere in Japan?). Shipping/customs to the UK seems to be fairly high from what other collectors have said, so I was hoping I could find somewhere that sells her when I next visit Japan ^_^;
WOOO LOLI YUSSSHHH
Hi Danny, I'm your website follower sice years ago!! You are great!
Regards from Spain!
PD: When will we see Tokyo Trooper again ? :D

Proud Otosan of DD Mari ^^
Solomon has always been amazing chap and he's great inspiration for the rest here.
Btw can anyone share more info on the blogger job for GoodSmile Company?
They should learn from the establish music labels and see how they are so successful on promoting their music to overseas. A large part is accessibility and next is having something where fans feel what they are paying is justified. You see akb48 fans buying 10copies if the same single and they dun feel the pinch. But each single is packed with so much goodies (photos set, poster, music video DVD) so it's worth buying it. On the other hand, I think anime companies need to work closer with streaming services such as nico nico and crunchyroll. The old model of just a airing on TV jut doesn't work anymore.
WOW rob has an awesome collection!
Finally finished the representative form. Really long writeup ^^
Nice! I will collect the photos then send in my application report before the deadline.
LOL I'm glad you found some use for your Christmas present.
Pretty! Send one over XD
Nendoroid Mirai is gonna rock!
My next vision for you is DD Mirai!! XD
yup yup ^^
My daughter Mari-chan prefers Fillet o Fish from McDees XD
Wow this is great news. There are tons of places and I have done quite alot of research based on the "today Japan Photo" section on my blog.
Top of my list are:
1. Himeji Castle 姫路城
2. Tetsujin 28-go Gigantor in Kobe
3. Amanohashidate 天橋立
Of course, I must head to Akihabara and spend a day at the AKB48 theatre and newly opened cafe as well! XD
Interesting look behind the scenes ^^
Really awesome story and I always enjoy reading your sharing because it helps to motivate myself to push further as well.
I totally agree on the point about "sharing your passions" on how it will enrich our lives with new friendships and opportunity. It has helped me gone on to achieve more things and meet folks that I never though possible.
eh you are in Japan now?
She looks so kawaii!!! I love the pose where she was starting to trip while carrying those cones
I'm deeply traumatised by the Satanic Sisters. LOLOL
This is scarily awesome!!!
There's quite a few good dorama this season and I'm currently watching Control, Honboshi, LADY and Jidan Koushounin Gota Keshi. Each of the series I mentioned has some relation to psychology.
Very awesome indeed!
I see that you have gotten yourself a copy of Monster Hunting. XD
Wow the curtains are so GARRR
Just checked that it was held by my fellow Japanese customs officers. Should be reaching your soon I hope XD
Hey Danny not sure if you managed to received the goodies that I sent to you from Singapore?
