All may know our ZeptoPad and ARider. They were exhibited in SIGGRAPH ASIA 2009 during these 3 days, 17th – 19th.
We brought a set of real ARider devices so you could try it on actually there.
Thousands of people came to the event and many of them visited our digital stand!
And we could hear their “WOW” (especially when they see the helmet of ARider) directly. We thank many people for coming and giving opinions to us!
As I said before, we are now developing some systems for touch screen. So with Pioneer’s single touch screen, CYBER BOARD, the demo of SiteSneaker2007 was also exhibited.
Site Sneaker 2007 is the web browsing system to search and select web pages like when you chose some books at a bookshop.
Today, two years after its originally development, the system was again refined by Makoto’s live coding.
So there PDW cycle realized again like when we were in Macworld 2009.
Presentations were all exciting!
Mr Takahashi of Robo Garage gave a demonstration of ROPID. The robot’s actions of running and jumping were so smooth and cute! Also, the robo nodded when Mr Takahashi told it to do an action.
Works in Art Gallery space were so crazy and beautiful.
The above is the string display which Ryo bought at the first sight!
Other booths were also interesting!
Here some pics of works for Emerging Technology.
Works at digital stands (including us?) were unique and funny.
This is the devices to robotize note PC. Thought, there are similar other devices made in Hong Kong, but the devices at the stand was only 10,000 yen! It costed much more several years ago, so Ryo take it and actually ordered it!
We would not see so many booths, things and presentations like Lucas Film which recruited people there.
We haven’t seen such a many innovations at the same time. Usually the SIG is took place in America, but this year Asia one is took place in Yokohama, JAPAN, and the quality was almost the same! It was really wonderful opportunity for us to go there much more easier.
We hope this SIG will be taken place in Japan again.
Many thanks again everyone for coming and seeing us!

How are you doing? Time passes so fast and we’ve returned to Tokyo already.
It was our first experience as an exhibitor to join Macworld 2009. So exciting and so interesting for us.
Many people visited our booth (#4311 in North Hall), and showed their interests in our products. ZeptoPad which gives “white board in your pocket”, ZeptoLiner, a real outliner application, and iShodo, Japanese Calligraphy application. The whole concept of these apps is to make “alternative paper”.
Also, at our booth, Japanese developers of iPhone Apps gave presentations of their products: Samurai Chess, iKoto & iGeisha, Mascot Capsule, Realtime 3D animation library, FingerPiano, PokeDía, Teru-teru Weather changer, Mahjong Solitaire. Furthermore, Mr Nobi explained the situation of iPhone in Japan.
Visiting other booths was also exciting. Some exhibitor distributed rabbit ears (and I got it!), some made De Lorean and some perform sewing iPhone case. They were so funny and attractive, and gave some hints us how to appeal to visitors.
The best thing to join Macworld was that many people gave “wow” to us.
To tell the truth, iShodo and BullCam were made outside of Japan. iShodo was programmed on the way to Los Angeles from Tokyo. BullCam was polished on the way to San Francisco, in the desert of America. We drove Las Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, and San Francisco. During the long drive, Ryo planed, Makoto wrote the codes, and Reiko and I told our impression of the products. We call the cycle as PCW(Plan, Code and Wow) cycle. An idea is provided by Plan, and Code realizes it, and Wow stimulates and encourages the Plan to make the thing better. In our car, the cycle worked well and the applications were born.
At our booth, not only I, but also many viditors gave us “Wow.” We could hear such impression of people directly. That really encourages us to make things better and to keep developing something good continually. We are really really grateful to everyone for visiting and giving us such “Wow.”
Thanks a lot again,
many hags from the East country.
P.S. I’m not good at coding, but if I could support Plan and Code, I’m glad.
