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:
・Make: hat
・Air canon
・iPhone radio-controlled model car

Like the U.S. Maker Faires, this one was also fun for the whole family:

A legion of green onion-waving Hatsune Miku‘s from the Niko-Niko Engineering Dept.’s Onion-waving Team. Don’t understand the leek-waving phenomenon? <- Check the link.

And why not get her to play the drums too?

Or ride a bike, while twenty people take pictures:

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

Also on display: a 3D camera mounted on a UMPC

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:

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

I’ll be posting more stuff from MTM 02 as it the internet pumps it in, so be on the lookout for more MTM 02 coverage. Got some pics or video of MTM 02 that didn’t make it here? Send it on over!
