Let's Make Robots!

Japan

Big in Japan?

Google and Youtube keep haunting me for my dead projects. Today I was found by an editor for Gakken's magazine "Otona no Kagaku" (Grownup's Science). The magazine's upcoming January issue will have a Theo Jansen theme. Jansen apparantly is very big in Japan. The magazine includes a miniature, wind powered model of a strandbeest.

Robot-y things to do in Japan?

We're going to Tokyo on March 30 to April 9. Unfortunately I'm missing Robo-One by a week, but maybe someone knows of other fun robot related things to do while there? I've checked Robots Dreams so I'll have a few shops in Akihabara to visit but there isn't anything in their calendar yet.
