Coming tomorrow: Tokyo Akihibara Electric Town tour

Tomorrow we’ll continue our tour of Tokyo hacker spaces and places with a trip to Akihibara Electric Town. Akihabara is a winding maze with electronic components, test tools, (retro) video games, comic books, and more.

We shot some video of the tour. So much that the batteries died on the high-def camera and we finished with cellphone videos. Tomorrow we’ll have pictures for sure, but it may take a few days to clean up the video and make something enjoyable.

Also tomorrow, our first trip to Tokyo hackerspace, Ian’s presentation on getting your open hardware manufactured, and more.

  1. I had the opportunity to visit the Akihabara warrens while on vacation in Tokyo last week. That place is amazing. I couldn’t rationalize purchasing a project case from the incredible selection as I already have what I need for what I am working on.
