Tokyo’s ‘Robot Restaurant’ is a Spectacle of Techno-Entertainment, with Tesla Coils, Wearable Electronics Performers, Animatronics, & More
This place seems far-fetched. I’m still not sure if I believe it exists. Then again there’s a video below, and they have a Facebook page too. Located in the Kabukicho district in Tokyo, the restaurant whose tagline is “Welcome to Japan! Let’s go RobotSHOW!” combines animatronic puppets, cosplay- and costume-enhanced theatrics, Blue Man Group-esque drummers, dancers & performers covered in wearable electronics, and numerous floats, vehicles & contraptions into a compressed space that mimics medieval ‘dinner & tournament’ restaurant experiences. The entire facility is entirely covered in electronics and bedazzling ornamentation – here are just a few screenshots from the video at the end:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
