    • Robot Pulley Systems
      For the past few months we have been working on a different approach to building Smart Doll Automatic Version - using a system of pulleys which are controlled by servo motors - rather than having servos placed in all the limbs. The main problem we faced with the servos in the limbs was the lack of torque needed to be able to move the limbs especially when th […]
    • AX2014 Culture Japan Booth
      Anime Expo - one of the worlds largest anime/japan events. This years event took place between the 3rd and 6th of July at the Los Angeles Convention Center and was filled to the brim with anime fans - over 80,000 of them! Just like last year, we had a booth in the South Lobby. Unlike last year however, I was finally able to show the world the final version o […]
    • Japan Dentist
      One day I woke up with a pain on the side of my face and thought that maybe I had slept in an odd position to cause the pain (like with my foot in my face). I thought that the pain would go away after a while but it gradually became worse. I then noticed that I couldn't grind my food properly and that I could only chew on my food with my front two teeth […]

Otakon 2010. Baka to Photos to Anime. part 1

My second venture to Baltimore for the largest anime convention on East coast. Was waiting for it, and unlike last tear booked my ticket about two month in advance, thus sparing myself from 2 and a half hours queuing under the blazing sun.
This time just walked into the main entrance and grabbed that badge.

And so it went, three days non-stop fun.
Like I was mentioning in my older posts I’m very much into photography. Not professional at all, but rather just for fun.
Enjoy… Otacon 2010 from the inside of the iron shell.

Tank had Breached Into New York Anime Festival!

Believe it or not, this is my second anime convention so far. A bit more than a year ago, I dived into this anime fandom and since then I can’t surface. Everything, manga, anime, art, music, web resources and certainly conventions are so captivating and exiting to me.

So, here’s New York Anime Festival or NYAF for short. It had been held in Jacob Javits Center in New York City, same complex where annual New York Auto Show takes place. Complex itself is pretty huge, but as I’ve been previously warned by one of my friends NYAF occupies only one section of the whole center, and yes it is tiny.

First time being to an anime convention I went to Otacon in Baltimore, Maryland, and oh my goodness it was ginormous – 2 huge buildings topped off with thousands of people. I had a blast there. I’m not saying that NYAF isn’t worth visiting, it certainly is. It’s just a little less fun.

Jacob Javits Center as it looks from the corner of East 34th st. and 11th Avenue:
