Typhoon Battles Wonderful Robot Carnival and Loses (Video)


Two major forces of nature hit Tokyo today.

One was incredibly destructive - Typhoon "Man-Yi" that drenched towns, damaged houses, and shut down transportation including stopping the Bullet Train in its tracks for hours.

The other one was incredibly constructive - the 3rd Wonderful Robot Carnival which drew over 40 humanoid robot entries, challenged us with new events and new twists on old events, generated tons of laughs and never ending surprises, and left everyone with big smiles and great memories.  

We'll be posting details of each event along with photos and videos over the next week or so. In the meantime, check out the video collage below that was mashed up from today's photos, or browse through our Flickr photo collection.
