J-Pop Summit – 7/23/2016

Attended the annual J-Pop Summit Festival. Interesting cultural event with a tech conference, too.

The Japanese robotics industry leads Silicon Valley in unleashing consumer-facing products. This year’s festival introduced BOCCO, the Japanese version Amazon’s Echo with a very practical application for families in Japan. Really cool. Lots of opportunity for Yukai Engineering to bring this to the rest of the world.
