Inori – Prayer

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of AyaBambi, and so not only am I happy to see them in this video, but this is just an amazing example of projection mapping, to a degree I’ve never seen before. It was done using a new kind of projector called the DynaFlash *1, developed at Tokyo University’s Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory. The video itself was produced by TOKYO and WOW.

YamanoteYamanote

This is such a great project. “YamanoteYamanote” sees two Tokyo-based designers (Julien Mercier and Julien Wulff) produce a pair of posters inspired by each of the 29 stations on the Yamanote line. They’ve produced posters for Akihabara (pictured), Kanda, and Tokyo so far. Via Tokyo Soup.

For Honor in Akihabara

It was pretty exciting to see the photo you see here, taken as a giant banner for the game I worked on for most of 2016 was being put up in Akihabara. We all know that western releases don’t get that much attention in Japan, and so it’s pretty great to see For Honor get featured front and center in the heart of Tokyo’s “electronic” district. I also see that Famitsu is hosting a special site dedicated to the game.
