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.
Pimped out dress!
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
I want to importing vending machine in nepal from japan, this is possible? If possible please give me some idea

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.

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.

I love her. Her skin color is almost similar to mine. I think I will finally Will be able to customize my anime Mexican doll :)

So this is what a Japanese keyboard looks like
AUDIO TECHNICA YES!!!!
Danny, I had messaged you on facebook & weibo for a possible parr-time or intern about the robot smart doll you are building. Did you received it? If eligible, can you reply it?
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.
You have the right to bear arms...
I think he surely means that XD
Yay it reminds me wwww
@incineratingart craaap dat watch
If their appetite is anything like some other brand of dolls, this might prove difficult. ^_-
YES! I've been laying away money for her...
Hope you do the long lab coat uniform for her..
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.

i was wondering if you have any idea on when the smart doll plus would be finished and if you have any idea on how much one would cost? And Chitose is absolutely beautiful my favorite as of now
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!
Driving bus ? I thought you dress as a firefighter !
When kadokawa contents academy come to indonesia, jakarta ?
I already can not wait to learn
I will wait for the arrival Kadokawa Contents Academy hehe :)
Frankly, the only thing that's stopping me from getting a Smart Doll is the price. Where it is made / assembled is no where near my top 10 concerns / priority!
Exactly the kind of food that I needed in a typical lunch. Would be great if this kind of product is available in Singapore!
Please pick up an iPhone and you will see "made in China". Is it cheap? I disagree that "made in china" means "cheap with shoddy workmanship, second rate quality", and so on.
Personally, I don't care where it is from. I care more about quality. Of course, I agree that you should be very careful if you want a branch office in China.
So cute...I want to buy it
Like a bawse~ #TheHijabLife LOL
Please stock up more quantity and styles of hijab, Danny & Co.!!! :3
I've needed her since... yesterday!!! <3
A student of the Japanese language, spending a year studying in Matsuyama!
Mmmm...that IS a tasty burger!
This spot will always for me hold the memory of stepping off the night bus from Matsuyama at 5.30am, bleary eyed, about to take my first journey through Tokyo. Shinjuku was an amazing terminal to arrive at and the experience only got better from there.
Real Gold! They sold giant paper cups of this in a vending machine on my university campus. Cost about 100 yen and got me through so many long lectures on Japanese linguistics...
It's also super sweet! A lot of my friends really disliked Japanese bread because it was so much sweeter than back in the UK, but I loved it. Japanese bakeries are some of my favourite places in the world.
I know that feeling! My flight to Japan was one of the worst experiences ever. No amount of excitement could make up for the crippling inability to sleep...
No idea, I've eaten a few but I've never been told the names...
Do love me some cheeza now and then. Gonna miss Japanese snacks/food in general hardcore when I'm back in the UK...
In Japan, so I go out and buy it!
The Vita isn't region locked, at least not for physical copies of games. Downloaded games is another matter as they're tied to your PSN account, but if you buy a hard copy of the game then it's fine. I can understand waiting for an upgraded model though, as it surely won't take long given the PSP's history.
Interesting, not sure I'll run the risk of doing this myself, but good to know! And good to see someone is giving the Vita their support, fingers crossed sales start to go up with the release of some great new titles. Only have Tales of Innocence and Uncharted for my Vita so far, but looking forward to both Gravity Daze and Sumioni.
Well some can actually, IIRC there are some that you have put some form of ID card in to use... Also, cigarette vending machines will ask you for pre-paid cards thst you buy at a tobacconist (probably other places too). Never quite understood that though as no matter what time of day it is you're never more than 30 seconds from a 24-hour conbini, selling more fags than you could need...
A lot of alcohol vending machines will just let you spend away though, no ID required!
Considering it's yakiniku that's more reasonable than I was expecting! It would probably be about the same out here in Shikoku - and I thought I was going to be saving money by living out in the inaka!
Oh the irony, I'd be all over this if I actually had a proper interest in anime... Maybe if I watch ALL the anime tonight I might just get the job...
Are you in possession of a shiny new PS Vita then Danny? Lovely piece of kit - can't understand why they aren't flying off the shelves in Japan! Only have Uncharted and Tales of Innocence so far but they are taking up all my time - haven't looked a Japanese textbook in days!
Just missed ya! was here on the 7th and it wasn't too cold actually, until you got down by the river and it was bloody freezing! Had to dive in to a local Mr Donuts and abuse the free coffee!
10 years old and contemplating how I could get a hold of one of these things! Remember spending all my birthday money and more and getting my parents to wait up until about 1am bidding on eBay! So worth it in the end though.
This map gave me nightmares a few weeks back trying to find the best exit... Are the happy gaijin family posters still plastered everywhere?
Whilst I've had Indian curry in Japan that has tasted fantastic in it's own right (finally, lamb!), I couldn't call it Indian curry. They served curries that would normally be spicy with a wide choice of spices, and curries that should have taken the roof off my mouth, but instead contained no spice at all.
Still delicious, but very different!
I thought you were wearing an orange glove for a minute there!
You got to ni-kyuu in two years of self-study?! Wow, that's dedication. I've been studying Japanese at college and uni for three and a half years now and it's still going to take some serious study to be ready for ni-kyuu next July!

I've completely stolen this idea and homemade kanji posters are now adorning the walls of my room!
This makes me wish I'd studied a little harder to get in to a top University, they have it so good! That said, Oxford Brookes is decent enough, and some of our Japanese Studies lecturers are absolutely fantastic; the facilities pale in comparison to what's on show here though...
Surprised by the drop out rate at SOAS as well, I assumed that even though it's clearly a top, top institution, the sheer ability that one needs to get accepted would mean that the students who did get in would be the sort that would get their head down, study hard and push through. The SOAS Japanese course must be a tough nut to crack! I applied myself, and actually got the grades, but SOAS being elite, they looked down on my A's at A-level in Media and Film...
