Craftive presented off a clock that allows you to travel back in time. The Photolock has a camera attached above to record images of the people who pass before it, when you turn the dial the clock goes back in time then flashes through images back up to the present moment.
A cuter idea to help friends stay in touch was Coconachi from Yukai Gaku Engineering, a robotics startup company who recently enjoyed a lot of buzz on the Internet for their augmented reality game Miruku. Coconachi is an avatar that represents your friends, if your friend posts a comment on Twitter, it’ll move about, make a cute noise and flash its lights.
If your friend logs off, it’ll also inform you, in an appropriately cute way of course. It can transmit a variety of emotions through sound and movement, so you’ll feel closer to your friends. The soft and squishy robot is aimed at women who wouldn’t usually be interested in such technology.
When they do so, the creatures emit purrs of satisfaction, even more titillating still, if pressed together the creatures buzz with joy. In a country where public displays of affection are frowned on, this is a way for young couples to connect physically without grossing out passersby.
Lastly, there was a really lovable interactive device aimed at animators from ViVienne. Simply manipulate the cuddly bear’s motion and it appears onscreen. You can then edit or alter the motion as you see fit. Tokyo Make held a lot of more cool new devices and inventions, so make sure to visit next time. (JapanPulse)
