Ignite Show: Lisa Katayama on Japanese Gadgets and Toys

Lisa Katayama is a tech journalist and an expert on Japanese culture. She combines the two in her Ignite talk this week where she demystifies Japanese gadgets and their society’s fascination with them.

You’ve probably read Lisa’s writing before. She is the author of Urawaza: Secret Everyday Tips and Tricks from Japan (a fun book that I got for Christmas this past year). She currently writes for BoingBoing Gadgets and has written for Gizmodo and io9 in the past. You can follow her blog Tokyo Mango to keep up-to-date on new gadgets.

You can subscribe to the Ignite Show on iTunes or YouTube.
