SXSW 2020

Does it Spark Weirdness? Startup Pitch from Japan

Do you know Todai To Texas? It's an official project of The University of Tokyo, or Todai, for startups and students to launch and showcase their products in SXSW.

Since 2014, around 50 startups came to Austin and released their unique products, such as; a breakfast cooking robot, human levitating drone, robotic prosthetic leg, chimera grafting technology, illuminating gloves for dancers, water-reusable shower, circuit board printer, tiny satellite, and exoskeleton.

In this session, you can meet our 2020-batch startups selected by a slightly unusual screening process where the most important question was "Please tell us how weird you are."

Come and see the latest products from Tokyo, and tell us whether you feel weird or not. If the answer is yes, then we'll keep them!
