Crowdfunding Project: Play & Learn Projection Game “HAPPYTOWN!”

Want to create something more fun than smartphone apps that everyone can enjoy together!!

Until now, I’ve developed popular apps for smartphones and tablets, but I want to find ways for more people to have fun! So this time I’m jumping out of small screens, onto the grand stage of projection mapping to create a game which both children and adults can enjoy together at a time! Playing this game will require thinking and cooperation, and it will nurture children’s creativity!

Takt – Symphony for Your Living Room

Single shake of the baton sets the mood of your living room at once!

IoT devices are so convenient that you already find lots of them in your room. Each one of the devices are very well thought to make our lifestyles better, but if there are too many of those working separately, you’ll find it pretty hard to make them under control…
What I wanted this time is to control those devices at a time to make the atmosphere that matches your certain feeling with one gesture. Just shake a baton like an orchestra conductor (or Harry Potter) to draw a certain shape in the air. The synced devices will respond to your gesture in a group. You know usually, for the romantic mood, you’ll need to play Barry White on the stereo a bit louder than usual, turn on dim light and the AC, etc., but with Takt, you just cast a spell with the stick.

Also, I didn’t want to make one of those remote controls that will eventually go missing under the piled magazines on the table. Takt stands up nicely so you never miss it!

Make the baton memorize your certain gestures. Your single shake of the baton sets the mood of your living room at once!

PAKKUN – Smart Robot for Guest Houses

Smart robotics‘ privately owned IoT robot “PAKKUN” and Yahoo’s IoT platform “myThings Developers” work together to start demonstrating the use of robots in private properties for leasing as guest houses and rooms. With this robot, they aim to improve the convenience of both the host and the guest.

Designing a robot was one of my dreams, and finally I’m really glad that the dream came true. PAKKUN, the robot has unbelievably cute voices and gestures so I tried to make it adorable and friendly.

Guide to Starbucks

Sure, this will definitely take you to the Starbucks, but if your iPhone already knows you’re going to a Starbucks, how about showing a cute and chatty barista who’s happily guiding you to the store like a human while naturally asking you what you’ll order at the Starbucks? It’d not only save your time, but you could enjoy your way there. Also, it could work without you looking at the screen if you have a set of earphones.
