This is amazing news, however, it may be a good idea to create a basic version of her (no home security, and the like) and allow upgrades during purchase. This is definitely a product I would buy, but not with any hope to use it around the house like an android, more like a collectors item. I hope we'll get more frequent updates from here on out! It would be amazing to see her walk and pick things up! I'm just worried that this may be taking on too much for such a niche market, and that it won't bring enough customers for the sheer price of it!
Somehow I'm getting interested in Mirai, most probably due to the artistic sense, and the drawings :D I'm really keen to know what is this type of art known as ? The drawing done by IKKYUU, where my comment tag on. (The deform style, using diatonic colouring, with thick black line.. is there a name for this type of art?)
I think I'm in Love with this Character....<3
Wow... this looks so hilarious!
I always find it really amazing that while the younger generation is so modern and everything, they also keep their tradition and whatnot.
What a beautiful Culture.
Seeing these pictures reminds me when I was there last year, so beautiful.
BTW, I don't know if you'll read this, Danny-san, but if you're planning on making the clothes for the hijab ver, make sure it isn't too tight fit.
They are really beautiful.
The lifeblood of your company.
she needs a smaller bust mould i presume.
Is Mirai-chan is trying to tell you something? ...that nothing but a palace will do?! ><
I've been to the Kanamara Matsuri/Fertility Festival
Soo... senpai got noticed? lol.
So, if workload got too stressful, one only needs to jump from here.
This is what I'm talking about.
I... I don't get it. Dell's not good enough to make a display port cable that's... easier to use than third party products?
That seems like an... unneeded hassle. Why not get a computer/ laptop that has the more appropriate monitor for your work?
It's good problem to have.
Where is I can buy extra busts and hands for Smart Doll?
I can not find on the site.
Love the app^_^
Also, that 3D render of a space ship - I remember it. Some years ago you wrote that the tunnel vortex took you a month to figure out how to do it. And it was by creating some sort of a tunnel frame and then mapping a sprite or something. :D
"Change is easy only if you are not afraid or feel it bothersome"
I'm one of the people who don't like changes because everything new and unknown could pose a threat to my "safe and comfortable world". But it's a fairly limited world, I must say. I'm trying from time to time to change this, get things moving.
Thanks for reposting motivational posts from previous articles. It's certainly useful to be reminded of your valuable thoughts. :)
And I think it's time for me to find an answer to the question - "What do I want to do in life?" As years pass, it's becoming more pressing. I think I'm gradually getting closer to the answer. But the sooner the better.
Most of the times when I think about Japan and subway, I remember this problem - the groping AND false accusation groping. Being a molesting pervert terrorizing people is bad but I think false accusations are even worse. I don't know. I would certainly use those white straps.
Also, I must say I'm surprised to discover that those molesters are arranging their actions online.
THE BEST ADVICE FOR MEN -> OCCUPY ALL HANDS! ALL HANDS ON DECK!
Last Saturday I was at a Bunkasai and there was a presentation on Japanese Festivals. And I think they mentioned this one - Kanda Matsuri. There was a video of dancing people - with red and blue kimonos.
Dear Danny Choo,
I am referring to your comment below: 'We also interview the man in charge of everything too. He said off camera that while they are rolling more of these out in Japan, they are looking into taking this technology overseas too.
If you are interested then let me know and I'll hook you up with him!'
I am a student from Germany, currently working on a consulting project for a medium sized German company and identifying potential new business opportunities. One would be to enter the underground bicycle parking system, as we think the company has some core competencies it could apply to this new business area. Also, the underground bicycle parking system is almost not available in Europe yet, although market interest might be there.
Thus, I would really like to know whether you could provide me with some additional information (as to whether plans for going overseas exist) or even provide the contact details of the man in charge?
Thank you in advance and warm regards from Germany!
I took many a photo in Harajuku, all seasons - wonderful place, hope to get back there some time this year.
Thank you Tobias Lu Alastor Phoenix I can't wait to have the two girls at home :-)
Sugoi buy me 10 xD
Cogratz you are a proud future owner of a SmartDoll Sabrina.
If only they could rent some space in the same floor or one floor above/below. Get a different department. Though its easier to manage if you can see and walk to people within the same headquarters.
looking to get another floor in the building so should be easier
You can't hide from me, Rei-chan.
Also, is that a new Evangelion logo down there?
Are there plans for 2nd grade kanji?
I hope that the revenue growth also match with company growth.
Way to grow! That is amazing.
There's always room for "aggressive expansion".....as the Joker would put it.
Ese uniforme me dncanta
Thanks for your answer. So I must wait round about 6 weeks, before I can order some clothes, because it was only possible to made a reservation for the dolls, and now I am on a waiting list.
A great if frustrating problem to have. Do you think your success will make it easier to find new space than last time?
I think this is a good thing, is this a good thing? It's great to see that it's growing. Also it reminds me of that, "goldfish growing to fit the size of the tank" saying.
just wait for the e-mail, then you can order your smart dolls and accessories
Time to add a third shift.
Well that filled up quick.

Great to see you again! Was able to get a segment of your press conference on film: http://t-ono.net/convention-news/Danny-Choo-Press-Conference-Anime-Expo-2013.html
Looks great Danny! Looking forward in seeing her at Anime Expo. I am very interested in seeing how it all works out in the end especially with the robotic parts, this is definitely a new leap!
Would love to do a preview/review on it.
Red carpet interview video for this can be found here: http://www.t-ono.net/Anime-Expo-2012/Anime-Expo-2012-Red-Carpet-Video-Interviews.html
ooo L bust? Or will Peach Pai fit too? Feito might be able to take a day off.
Yo Akimoto, I'm really happy for you, I'm going to let you finish, but Black Rock Shooter has the best music video of all time. One of the BEST MUSIC VIDEOS OF ALL TIME!
Must have been a lot of work for those cosplayers. Awesome goodie bags, though they look a bit clumsy to walk with!
Interesting, can't wait to hear about what this is all about.
But she's mine!
Ah I was fixing Feito hair, what a mess!
Looks like someone is hard at work! :p
Wow! Is Anime Expo holding 3 press junkets? That's unusual, in the past it's typically the day before the con. Definitely going to schedule with AX to interview you. See you soon!
Can't wait to see the finished painted product. Definitely want to buy!
O.o Is that Akiyama I see handling the Goodsmile goodies?
May'n and her manager are pretty nice people. Got to meet them at Animelo Summer Live 2009 while backstage for a photoshoot. Definitely look forward to see more content on her!
Yep I was there, was really confused when then they started playing the video at the end. It was pretty funny actually, the other press members and myself were all looking confused and started snapping madly with our cameras at the screen as soon the Black Rock Shooter Project logo was shown.
Aw... I just left Japan too after Animelo!
Nooo, why?! I won't be in Tokyo till the 11th. >.<
Arg Danny! Definitely I am picking her up, hopefully Volks will be at Comiket.
Love the Fate, but disappointed they don't have her sonic form outfit, would definitely by otherwise. I'll wait for the Yoko and Nia doll pictures to be released first before deciding which one to buy.
Some great pictures you got there. Good to hear about job openings with the economic slump hitting hardest in America and affecting the rest of the world, making job hunting difficult for otakus.
Hm... the food at home looks quite delicious.
Definitely I want that figure, though the pictured looks like a kit. The original prepainted figure by Volks came on a black base with a number on it, 1000 in Japan and 3000 worldwide.
Definitely picking her up to go with my Dark Elf. I really hope they do an Elf in Majestic Robes. /drool
The previous Dark Elf wore Apella robes, while this Human Female Mage looks like she's wearing heavily modified Dark Crystal Robes.
Definitely pass on this, though what kind of show was this featured on, a kids show? Kind of scary... That drink from the beginning was huge, though I don't think most people would mind if that was beer. :p
On an average, Wikipedia is pretty accurate on most topics especially in recent years, though again it's not 100%. Another reason is that technically by using Wikipedia, a large chunk of the research work is already done for you since a lot of entries reference many sources. Makes sense why a lot of instructors would advise against it, at. :p
