Analog devices like records are regaining popularity today when digital devises are developed. The daily calendar which “produces garbage everyday” unlike digital, on the contrary, allows us to feel the flow of time with substances. If this calendar is automated, it will certainly be popular!

Walking Robotic Penguin:Yotchichi

Produced by Sendai Technical College Suenaga Laboratory

Explanation of the invention: Many bipedal walking robots walk with a motor while Yocchicchi walks with a solenoid. It is just like a penguin walking like a toddler. I put a lot of the effort to make the appearance good.

Interesting way of using solenoids for moving a center of gravity makes it excellent. The direction can also be changed by controlling. As humorous movements and mechanisms are directly perceived, it is easy for children to understand as well.

Tako Pon No.3

Produced by Urka’s Mori

It is an automatic Tako(octopus) shape sausage making machine to help making a bento box every morning. It is called “octopus PON” because it sounds “Pon !!” when making sausages. Sausages are still made into a very short-feet octopus, but bear with it for now, I will do my best in the future to improve it.

There are so many jokes about this machine like “Is this the only work they do using so much power?” “Isn’t it impossible to wash though it cooks food?”A very nonsense machine filled with punches. On the contrary, it makes me feel the gratitude for my mother.

Transforming a delicate pulse into a “visible one” with a simple movement of the solenoids makes it a communication tool. Its cute shape makes us want to try.

This is a new way of using the movement of solenoids as a haptic interface. I would like to see a football game with all eleven players wearing this device.

This is a bit too creepy. I feel the shyness of the lady where the solenoid is used for one more last kiss.
