After work shopping in Ueno and Akihabara

After work I took the Yamanote line together with my coworker Miyagi to Ueno, where he showed me some bike shops.

The new Cannondale Caad 10 frame, 2014 model.

You might remember I saw the 2013 model of Cannondale Caad 10 in Okutama (my own Caad 10 is a 2012):

I wanted to get this bell, but then it hit me that someone stole my last bell – unscrewed it from my bike, a totally regular bell. Another time someone had loosened the screws on my front wheel, just “for fun”. So I don’t think this looker would last long on the hard streets of Neukölln. I bought a detachable back light instead. (Of course I’m talking about my regular bike now, not the road bike, which lives in my apartment.)

Then we strolled to Akihabara, where Miyagi, who is an engineer, showed me some small electronics stores. Dinner and beer at Tendon Tenya.

This is Raspberry Pi! I wanted to get one of those some months ago, but decided I had enough hobbies. Maybe some other time.

Many men flocked around the 3D printers.

Nice goop.

Here’s a more rough 3D printer that we found in one of the smaller stores. Some of the printed items (or well, one of them) also differ a bit from those in Yodobashi.

    I saw this video yesterday. Pretty cool, I think. It makes me want to go out an scan statues an print miniatures of them. Probably wouldn’t work that well, but the thought is alluring.
