MAKE: Tokyo Meeting 02 was held on 11/8 at Tokyo’s Tama Art University, and the MAKE: Japan events just keep getting bigger, better, and wonderfully wilder. Here are a few highlights gleaned from the massive influx of pictures, video, and bloggings that this event inspired.

There was a speedcabling competition. The winner studied other speedcabling videos in preparation for this event, and as you can see, it paid off.

Here’s a great video overview of MTM 02, complete with some rocking Tesla coils.
