Tokyo Design Week, 30.10.-3.11.
Design Week is a very similar event to Design Tide, happening at the same time and focusing mainly on more established international and Japanese product design. Its main location is in Meiji Jingu Gaien, but satellites are spread around the whole city.
This year, Design Tide, the Tokyo based product design show, went into its fifth year. It's been interesting following this event the past 4 years and seeing it grow from a small insider event into a very mature exhibition. This year it somehow felt like already surpassing its bigger brother, the Design Week – a similar event held at the same time.
We just came across this beautifully designed and programmed Japanese website for verbatim. http://www.verbatim.jp/senshuken/
To enjoy the site, you have to answer the 10 questions at the start. You can do this even if you don t speak japanese by just clicking 10 times randomly on any of the 3 circles.
To fight against one of the 3 differnt opponents, you can click on the 3 buttons on the bottom of the screen which releases one of your 3 special moves.
