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.
Here’s a video featuring four particularly awesome things from the meeting: ãƒ»Make: hat ãƒ»Air canon ãƒ»iPhone radio-controlled model car ãƒ»Homemade tank

There was a speedcabling competition. The winner studied other speedcabling videos in preparation for this event, and as you can see, it paid off.
MTM also had a performance portion, that included tech-creative guests such as RedFrik as well as Craftwife, the iPhone-controlled SuperCollider Kraftwerk tribute performed. Video recording of her live performances is prohibited, so we are left with this:

LED-endowed Day of the Dead Bags.
And of course, a collection of some Katamari Damacy amigurumi.
Here’s a great video overview of MTM 02, complete with some rocking Tesla coils.
