Prynt smartphone case lets you print photos on the fly

prynt_mainimage

Wouldn’t you love to be able to take photos and print them out without having to lug around your ridiculously huge Instax or Polaroid instant camera? with the Prynt instant camera case, you can forgo all that and use your smartphone Polaroid-style.

The Kickstarter project is compatible with both Android and iOS, the case basically lets you snap a picture and immediately print it out; which is perfect for selfie lovers and shutterbugs alike who like having their digital memories made physical. Basically you plug your smartphone into the case (it connects to your phone via the microUSB charging dock) and eliminates the need for Bluetooth pairing or connection over Wi-Fi. It even has it’s own battery so it won’t leach on your phones’.

So how does it work? kinda like this:

prynt
whirrrrr…..ding!

The Prynt is designed to be modular too, so it will fit different phones, just swap out the dock or adaptor and you’re good to go. The printer is also inkless so you don’t have to worry about spillage, since the ink is in the paper. It also comes with an App that not just adds filters and the usual camera app stuff, it turns each photo into an Augmented Reality experience! When you snap a photo, the app takes a short video which it stores on the Cloud; hold your phone over the printed image and it plays the video in AR.

Does this mean we can have physical .gif files now?

The Prynt case is available in blue, white and pink, with the lowest available tier currently at $99 (about RM360)

The project is still running for a week, so hit the link to check it out!

Sailor Moon x Samantha Vega Fashion Collab is a go

walletsSamantha Vega fashion is doing a collaboration with the Sailor Moon franchise to produce some fashion accessories bearing the likenesses of icons from Sailor Moon in celebration of their 20th anniversary. While they do feature the iconic styling of the characters, they still look classy (or cute) enough for anybody who would just like to have a nice albeit colourful, purse.

Moon Stick Leather Bag, probably the classiest item of the lot

 

The lineup includes two stylish handbags, six pouches and six wallets, all themed on the sailor senshi’s themselves, which should be on any serious Sailor Moon fan’s wishlist. Pity they can’t actually make you transform though!

Sadly they aren’t going to be available just anywhere in part to it being part of the Sailor Moon x Isetan “GIRLS SPARKLE LOVE ~ LET’S PRISM POWER MAKE UP! ~” pop-up store in Japan, which is running from 25 March to 31 March 2015.

No word on the pricing yet but we wager since it’s limited edition merchandise it’s not going to be cheap. Still, who wouldn’t want that adorable Luna styled leather bag?

Here’s hoping that they do accessories based on the Outer Senshi too!

Latest “Project Itoh” theatrical anime teaser is up

 

The three movies
The three movies

After Psycho-Pass the Movie made tons of money (770 million yen to be exact) and completed of its run at Japanese cinemas, Noitamina next effort will be centered on three works by the deceased Satoshi Ito, a sci-fi novelist who wrote his works under aegis of Project Itoh. His works – Genocidal Organ, Harmony and The Empire of Corpses (which is finished by Toh Enjoe, winner of Akutagawa Prize after Ito’s death) will be animated by Noitamina for 2015 theatrical release in Japan.

So far, we only knew which animation studio and main staff for three works. No announcement on the casting or exact date of airing is known yet.

The Empire of Corpses
The Empire of Corpses

The Empire of Corpses is about 19th century London in alternate steampunk universe where a medical student, John Watson, future partner of Sherlock Holmes is investigating a mysterious Dr. Frankestein who is working on a “corpse resuscitation technology”. Directed by Ryotaro Makihara (Hal) with original character designer redjuice and animated by WIT STUDIO (Shingeki no Kyojin). This movie is scheduled for 2015 release.

Harmony
Harmony

Harmony will be directed by Takashi Nakamura (Fantastic Children) and Micheal Arias (Tekkon Kinkreet) with character design by redjuice and animated by STUDIO4 ℃ (Tekkon Kinkreet, Berserk movies). As above, the movie will be out in 2015 too.

Genocidal Organ
Genocidal Organ

Last but not least, Genocidal Organ is going to be directed by Shukō Murase (Ergo Proxy), redjuice will be responsible for the character designing and studio manglobe (Ergo Proxy, Samurai Champloo) will be responsible for the animation of the movie. And yes, this movie will be out in 2015 too.

This is the official synopsis of Harmony and Genocidal Organ novels by Viz USA under Haikasoru translation project:

Harmony

In the future, Utopia has finally been achieved thanks to medical nanotechnology and a powerful ethic of social welfare and mutual consideration. This perfect world isn’t that perfect though, and three young girls stand up to totalitarian kindness and super-medicine by attempting suicide via starvation. It doesn’t work, but one of the girls—Tuan Kirie—grows up to be a member of the World Health Organization. As a crisis threatens the harmony of the new world, Tuan rediscovers another member of her suicide pact, and together they must help save the planet…from itself.

Genocidal Organ

The war on terror exploded, literally, the day Sarajevo was destroyed by a homemade nuclear device. The leading democracies have transformed into total surveillance states, and the developing world has drowned under a wave of genocides. The mysterious American John Paul seems to be behind the collapse of the world system, and it’s up to intelligence agent Clavis Shepherd to track John Paul across the wreckage of civilizations and to find the true heart of darkness—a genocidal organ.

It looks like very serious, dark and sombre movies with lots of philosophical feel to it ala Ghost in the Shell: Innocence. What do you think of it, comment below and let us know.

Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai/下ネタという概念が存在しない退屈な世界 or A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist is a Japanese light novel series by Hirotaka Akagi with illustrations by Eito Shimotsuki. So far, eight volumes have been out since July 2012 under Gagaga Bunko and was adapted into a manga series by N’Yuzuki under title of Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai: Manmaruhen (manga-hen) (下ネタという概念が存在しない退屈な世界 マン●篇) since May 2014.

The announcement. Yes, she is wearing a panties on her head proudly.
The announcement. Yes, she is wearing a panties on her head proudly.

Yes, now, we have anime adaptation coming up.

Director is confirmed to be  Youhei Suzuki (Toradora!, Aoi Hana) and series composition will be done by Masahiro Yokotani (Free!, Hataraku Maou Sama)  with character designing falling to Masahiro Fujii (Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo, Hayate no Gotoku!!). Cast involved are Yūsuke Kobayashi (Arslan Senki, Nozo x Kimi), Shizuka Ishigami (Nozo x Kimi, Nagi no Asakura) and Miyu Matsuki (Dog Days, Haibane Reimei).

The story is just basically about two teenage “terrorists” launching a raunchy or crass assault against a talented female student council president while there is an institution of “Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising” that bans all forms of swearing for 16 years in a dystopian future of Japan.

J.C Staff (Golden Time, Witchcraft Works), veterans of the anime industry will be animating the series. The series is well known for borderline hentai jokes and pranks which should be an interesting, if not crass comedy that is very in-your-face.

The anime series is confirmed for a July lineup this year.

A new game based on the famous kaiju, Godzilla is coming to PS3 and PS4 this July. In the small teaser, we have the glimpse of all the famous kaiju in Toho’s pantheon – the big G itself, maternal Mothra, the three headed golden dragon Ghidorah and the hybrid Mecha Godzilla.

Notably, the Godzilla is based on Japanese Toho version, specifically the one from their last movie, Godzilla Final Wars (2004). Not the US 2014 version which many Japanese thought looks “too fat”.

Can any of you identify all the kaijus featured in this game yet?

Here, you can see the eternal conflict being played out between the King of Monsters versus the Protector of Mankind, Mothra. The video also showing off the gameplay mechanics and feel too.

The game is set for July 2015 showdown. Are you excited about this? Comment below and let us know.

Being a Pro-gamer is still not a conventional job in most parts of the world maybe except Asia. Now you can study on how to be an e-Sport master in formal education setting in Japan.

The e-Sports scene is growing bigger and bigger by the year, as evidenced by 71,500,000 estimated viewers in 2013 alone. Few weeks ago, Malaysian government recognized e-sports as a formal sport and one of the biggest Dota2 competitions is being held in the Malaysian capital too. The International 2014 have a cash prize pool of US$10 million with the winning team from China (Newbee) walking away with a sweet US$5 million, underscoring the explosive growth of the sports.

In some of the regions (especially in Europe) being a pro-gamer is still seen as a hobby and not as an accepted full time job but not in Asia. In Asia (China, Korea & Japan) being a pro-gamer is a pretty cool job and able to make a decent living. A formal educational school decided that they will start an educational curriculum for aspiring gamers in Japan to learn how to be a real professional e-Sport gamer – managing teams, seeking sponsors and hooking up the right team members, the technicality behind the gaming scenes, editing the recorded videos and other necessary skills to be a bona fide pro-gamer.

The school is located in Tokyo ( Japanese fluency is a must if you want to be a student there) and is called the Tokyo School of Anime.

Yes, school of anime.

The first semester of the e-Sport class starts in September 2015 and interested applicant(s) able to find all the information about the course on the admissions page. Check out their page after this article.

So are you dreaming to join this school? Comment below and let us know.

Looks like a serious story on the Universal Century era of Mobile Suit Gundam lore, a welcome addition after the conclusion of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn not long ago. The animation looks lush and battle is pretty well animated with generous production value by Sunrise Studio.

Now hopefully, the story won’t be so stilted or cringe worthy dialogue like the Unicorn does.
