Gakken news

A little activity on the Gakken Facebook page. First, there’s a video using the USB camera, called the “Goes Anywhere F1 Car”, by one of the artists mentioned in the book. Basically, it’s just the camera mounted on a model F1, and then hand-carried around the neighborhood.

Next is a link to the Gakken Tumblr page, where a number of other videos have been uploaded for the “15 second” contest.

Then we have the ad for the latest “Petite Handmade” book, the pottery kit, now available from Amazon for 1,995 yen ($20 USD).

Something that is missing is any mention of the next Gakken Otona no Kagaku kit, the Auto Writer. The main Gakken site still has a tentative release date of Jan., 2013, but there’s not even a placeholder page for it on Amazon yet. Meaning that Gakken probably isn’t ready to start promoting it at this point. I’m assuming that Gakken is going to slip schedule this time, but I remain optimistic.
