I’m Ted Yan, and I had read your story about start a business since 4 yrs ago, and I have recently read ‘我在日本的創業之路’ & your update about larger size, robot version of Mirai. Again, that’s really amazing for me.
I am major in Computer Engineering at UIUC(University of Illinois of Urbana Champaign), I had done some works about both AI & NLP.
I had also many experiences in both mobile (Hybrid Apps, Native iOS Apps), Web development(Angular, jquery, etc) and low level C programming (had programmed for Arduino since 6 years ago). Plus, I also had did works about UI/UX design for mobile and web for 2 yrs.
Besides, I am a fan for Anime & Japanese culture for years, I can speak Japanese at N2 level, and I had published Doujinshi (such as Hannibal TV Show, see the link below) since high school, and I had worked as cosplay model, and maid for maid cafe in Shanghai when I was in high school.
This year, I had admitted by University of Tokyo for the USTEP exchange program, which starts from this March (ends in late August). I will study in Tokyo for about half a year since March. I am wondering, is there any opening available in Mirai Inc?
Both intern/part-time job about robot, hardware, web/app developing, UI/UX design, fashion design (I had also done little bit about it for my cosplay clothes,etc) should be fine for me.

i need that outfit :3
How can we reach you for business opportunities ?
It's really amazing that how you shared such information. i'm really shocked. i see it as a humanitarian act some how and i really would like to thank you for this. specially when you said that " so that others can use the knowledge to make stuff too. " thanks again!
I can't select the beige version in the shop ("select color of choice from pull down.") or did you sell only the red one at this time?
... and perhaps this short Version and of course the long Shirt of Mirai ;)
It'll be so great, if you selling all colors :)
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. 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.

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 :)
@dawood_alkiyumi @sultan_al_zadjali @iidr4gnz
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!
I love japan and its culture, my dream is living in japan with the latest figures/anime/manga/technology someday ^^..
Done~ Wish the images were a bit larger, I wanted to close in Mirai's kawaii face xD
Congrats! Kids are such a blessing. I'm too young to having them though, I will wait until I graduate college, marry and have a stable job ^^:;;
It hasn't been long since the start of spring and there is much to do already! Good luck. Very benry (play word lol), useful the google calendar link, maybe that way I won't forget to tune in~
This figure is godly xD lol
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'll post my answers in a bit x3
I don't know how much I'll be able to help since I'm planning in going back to college next year but in the meantime I have some time to available so I'll shoot you an email ^^
Wow just read this and its amazing the number of responses, I'm happy that many people would love the opportunity to travel to Japan and share their experience!
Of course I'm included in the group, I owe a lot of my being due to Japanese Culture, so I would love the chance to see with my own eyes the land of the rising sun.
As a student the best time to go for me would me in the months of Jun-Oct, and I've have the financial help to pay my way around as I would love to travel through Japan like Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo. Maybe I could go together with my big brother that lives in Canada since he is as interested in me in visiting Japan.
As I said when I personally met Danny Choo in AX'11, Japanese culture and he, himself, have shaped the person I am today, so I would love the opportunity to be just as them to other people, share my passion for Japan in the web to others with the same passion. Sorry for the long response, and thanks for the opportunity that is going to be given to the people.
Since I was the last winner of a figure (Yui figure), I'll solely answer with the motive of stating how I got into DC. Back in 2008-9, I remember watching a section in G4's Attack of the Show related to Dancing StormTrooper and a brief introduction to Danny. I remember that made me visit the site and got hooked up with it.
My top pick for best ED goes to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann The Movie Lagann-hen ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LW3DyRlWLc Simple yet beautiful animation, plus great song.
Can't seem to think an OP right now but for me the thing that has the most effect in an OP is the song. I may not be able to remember the OP itself but if I hear the song anywhere it will make me remember about the anime, and if I don't remember it will make me wanna remember it! So not only do you need a visual striking OP but a song that fits the theme of the series.
It seems like I was X3
First time I've seen my hand had this much commanding power, lol XD
We did a good job poster patrol!
Pipo in the background X3
To be honest I can't really remember where I was ^^:;;
Sorry for the delay, I got busy during the days of AX ^^;;; yeah maybe email would be better. What's your email address?
I'm visiting some family for two weeks.
that's the thing I'm not really sure what I'm looking for since I come from a small town. Anything Japanese related is an obvious choice, but anything else you could recommend would be greatly appreciated it ^^.
I was about to post something similar to this, since is my first time in LA i was also looking for some recommendations XD
I absolutely loved Donkey Kong as a kid. Remember playing it in the SNES and then in the GB and GBA X3
Black rock Shooter the animation ver.
Very interesting, didn't thought I would see an anime where Mirai would be the main protagonist so soon. ^^
not sure if it is just me but below the 2nd pic, in the second paragraph you might have misspelled 'learnings' for 'leanings'.
I used to draw anime/manga girls as a hobby but stopped as of late, iphone developing learning took priority. Still I will continue doing some illustrations since it will help me draw the icons for the apps that I will develop. After I get the hand of developing, I hope to continue drawing kawaii girls ^^
