I became aware of the "Smart Dolls" yesterday - wow, are they georgeous! Beautiful work, really - but so far :(
Have you come to toy trade fairs in Germany in time? Or do you have already some dealers which you delivered here?
Hope you understand my bad english ^^
Many Greetings, Doschi
( forgot to proofread, not my native language/ do pardon) A few personal opinions that might help promote the Japans 2020 Olympics : First: The committee with the private sector businesses should take advantage of most of the Japan-theme conventions that are held abroad. Second: The Japan Tourism Agency could implement an agreement with the Japanese airlines that enables some sort of quota for cargo that can benefit the private Japanese businesses. This would enable fast track transportation, of promotional and informational merchandise with low costs. Third: most big conventions are held in big cities therefore have embassies and most of them have connections flights to Japan. This is one way for promoting the Olympics of 2020, and its culture to already fans and newcomers. Another consideration is that most Japanese culture-theme conventions will charge nothing to little to have Cool Japan enterprises participate and be part of the conventions. You can also play it as a package agreement ; encompassing all the agencies into one large booth (just if it works of course). This should enable the agencies to come in contact and promote the Olympics in a direct manner with the people that are already interested in Japans culture and the newbies of this great culture.
sooo... any plans on making these available for purchase? I'd love costumes for them!
I know! Every time there is a new post my wallet is getting thinner and thinner. May be I should pour some water and make it expand a little XD
Danny, you are an asshole to my wallet. I JUST ordered Eiji, but the tan guy due out march is BEAUTIFUL!
I hope my credit card recovers T.T

Personal opinion: The committee with the private sector businesses should take advantage of most of the Japan-theme conventions that are held abroad. also the Japan Tourism Agency should have an agreement with the Japanese airlines that enables some sort of quota for cargo and transportation that can be beneficial for the private Japanese businesses. This would enable fast track transportation, of promotional and informational merchandise with low costs. Basically most big conventions are held in big cities therefore have embassies and most of them have connections flights to Japan. This is a great way for promoting the Olympics of 2020, and its culture to already fans and newcomers of this culture. I know it is easy to say than to implement but we must take in consideration that most Japanese culture-theme conventions will charge nothing to little to have them participate and be part of the conventions. You can also sell this as a package agreement encompassing all the agencies into one booth. This should enable the agencies to come in contact and promote the Olympics in a direct manner with the people that are already interested in Japans culture and, the newcomers of this great culture.
awesome cartoon showing ----------- thanks to danny chooo.
MCM Expo, Manchester, England
Got mine of a UK seller on eBay preowned.
One of my favorite figures.
clean you suit!
it would be nice if you can make her mouth move.its a really good idea to do Danny.
i would want one that speaks and can move it's mouth. it would look more realalistic.
So awesome! I hope to see this become a thing! I would definately buy it~ I hope it wasn't (isn't) a joke X3
Hello from Canada!
I am just hoping for an update on the smart doll plus. I have always wanted a robot like this! I've wanted a small one, and I know that others want a larger size and that you are focused on developing that... but at the same time it is hard to tell from the pictures how far you are in your process. I want to have an idea of where you all are in the process, and what the ETA currently is. Thanks!
You have nice way to share your knowledge. Well organized and perfectly arranged thank you.

It's really amazing idea about your smart doll.
I also noticed that you are trying to make it able to connect with IFTTT.
So I am wondering if you need some way to let the doll able to connect with the IPcamera for liveview.
(I mean with other cameras in the house instead of setting one in the doll's head)
We are TUTK from Taiwan specializing in video transforming platform and IoT connection ways.
The main solution we provide is let iOS/Android able to connect with the devices in house with 3G or Wi-Fi.
Now there's about 3kk devices with our solution in the world (Like スマカメ in Amazon JP)
If you are interested in linking with cameras , please kindly tell me! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am looking forward to talk with you in Tokyo!
zoo's are sad but they do a good job of educating kids and adults about what animals are out there and how big they can really get. i think the most important part is that the animals aren't alone in their pen. 3 or 4 of the same animal seems about right. pals to play all day with ^^;
how have they held up? its been almost 10 years!
...Her transformation is too fuwa fuwa~
bout the wheels...ya because of that simple fact, non-remove-able, I had to put them aside, for some kids using them(my mum gave them to sb for a moment) in dirt+coca cola...heh yet I enjoyed rolleblading back then, don't have a photo still...
Got the same exact color :D
Danny, I love this smart doll plus! When can I buy one??
I don't speak Japanese? What does it say?
I really love Chitose's character designs here , but I don't know if i'll buy her doll as I really don't like the mouth design I've seen so far. =/

When converted to Australian dollars the doll itself is over $600 and the clothing is up to $184!
I think the dolls look great but for a non-robotic toy (btw why is it called a smart doll when there are no robotics/electronic versions for sale yet) don't you think the prices a a bit too high?
When your selling a t-shirt for a doll at a higher price than what I would pay for a t-shirt for myself to wear, there is something very WRONG with the the world.
When you begin mass production either in Japan or ffshore will prices drop and if so when. Will the price drops be significant do you predict?
At these prices your non-smart smart dolls are toys fr the rich only. I can't afford such prices as much as I love anime and your characters.
I've been torn apart between buying Mirai and Ivory for a while. I think that Ivory is SUPER gorgeous with her green eyes and red hair, but Mirai seems like she's got more of a character and personality built already. Ivory seems like the 'side choice' of Ebony, and I feel like she doesn't get much pictures and publicity like Mirai and the older models.
Can you describe Ivory's character to me? What she is, and the story behind her? I'd love to hear more about her. I also would like some advice on buying them, as if I've decided who to buy, I'd be a first time doll owner^^ Which one do you think will be better? Thank you in advance^^
Invaluable writing . This blog is so cute!! :) Kawaii!! BTW , if people is requiring to merge two images , my colleague saw a service here http://goo.gl/nhPTcm.
Australia does prawns and ham.
That`s me, OMG! But my Chest isnt that big, im a MAN. Nice Work ;)
Is Great i'm Otakus :) I'm loving :3
Where do we get those!? Nice!
Hi Danny Choo, how are things? are you available to talk in these days? Im a big fan of your work :)
Wow, I can imagine Mirai looking down at me. I wonder what will she do if she sees me...
عوار بطن و سهال
I'll be there tomorrow ! ٩(♡ε♡ )۶
You are the man, Danny. We need the 'Mirai'.
An anime-lover, mangaka-wannabe, moe-sucker, game-slave progammer
What? Too typical you said? XD
That's what came across my mind too ^_^
Finally a Mio that looks like one xD
Hehehe, this is it, your kinda level is what I'm aiming for all these years.
Been drawing for 12 years and I'm still only a noob compared to you ^_^
No giving up though, I swear someday I will be as good as you \(^o^)/
Congrats for amiami for their arms-upgrade XD
And my guess would be [23:15:27]
Happy B'day to the Otaku Trooper!!!
Hope my room will be otaku enough for Otacool Zwei next time XD
Whoah, I wonder how would I feel if I see her and then he called me "Jii-san" T_T
Anyway, I'm not into this kinda thing, no 3D girl is better than 2D XD
That's the true otaku. Live in the shadows, die in the shadows XD
nah, It's just your imagination ^^;
Hoh, the giant mecha is quite cool.
Other than that ... nothing new, I guess ^^;
Hohohoh, no time limit, Danny?
I'm hyped for this thing, finally I got a strong reason to design something again XD
Already have a few concept in my head, wait a little longer for me Danny XD
Forget about "Wish Fullfiling 1000 Paper Crane", let's cover the sky with 1000 flying pantsu!!! XD
I haven't watched the show though ^_^;;
Even Sabra has given up? Things does not look well here in Japan eh.
Anyway, 2D always wins, no questions about it Danny ^_^
Wohohoho, can't wait for this. I planned to buy an X360 before just to get this game, but since I heard that PS3 will have their own Bayonetta, turned to PS3 side in a second XD
Awesome game I must say, too bad the port is WAY from perfect. But, oh well, even having it ported to PS3 is a bliss ^_^
The arts looks good. How 'bout the story? Any good? Or is it just another do-anything-while-showing-pantsu scenario?
Awesome, just awesome. Now this is "Otaku's Dream" kinda way of living.
Anyway, what studio will do this? KyoAni??? XD
It will hit Nagoya tomorrow. Hope nothing bad happens ^_^;
Anyone who dares to slave a loli will face my wrath!!
Anyway. this girl doesn't look like a loli =_=
Will buy one if they remodeled it a little cooler. Like, err, Red Eyes's armor? XD
It won't be long until we see Anime-fied Mirai (^o^)
Until that happens, FIGHT, Danny, FIGHT!! XD
Look at all that comments!! o_O
But anyway, eventhough my reason is different, I can understand their reason of not wanting to get married. Getting married is a serious bussiness, coz it means no more selfish thinking. Not to mention Japan's declining economy (for now), which make costs for marriage is kinda hard to swallow.
And if you live in Japan, you'll know that some women really does married for financial reason, they even take payment when they make bentos for their husband, demand money when husband want to make out. And believe me, all that I said here is true. Not all women are like this though, just some of them. This is a public secret in Japan.
And to Robin out there, please, try to see things from Japanese men's prospective before you post anything like this.
Will go there just to check out the Miku theme XD
And, might also be interested to donate a few galons of my blood
I "was" moving around when I play games, especeially action games. But that was way long ago, I'm cool as an ice now XD. Except when I play MH, that game was really REALLY intense.
As for NGS 2, I don't think I'm interested, Uncharted 2 is a better option in my opinion ^_^
I am a sucker for Yamashita-sensei's work. But still, 15k yen is definitely out of the question. Not to mention the so-so base T_T
I think we deserve more for 15k yen . . .
Wow, now that's what I call a matsuri, just like what we saw in animes and mangas ^_^
This reminds me, there's going to be a matsuri called Nagoya Matsuri in this weekend. Let's see if it's as awesome as this.
