ONLY in JAPAN : ... Welcome to deep Akihabara! hahaha~ I'm so glad YouTube brought us creators together this fall to make this and looking forward to diving deeper into the tech scene here with you. Congratulations on 1M subscribers! -john

Ozan : Here is a cool idea! Let's swap lightning port of an iPhone 8 with a USB C port! Is it doable? Can't be harder than adding a nonexisted headphone jack port. πŸ€—

baileyboy125 : 7:40 They look like they recognised you guys

kwelem 5627 : This one is better collaboration than Linus lol I just finish watching when Scotty took Linus around China lol πŸ˜‚

GuelphRacing : Hey random person scrolling down the comments.. Have a pleasant evening :)

Stian klippe : i am going to tokyo in july for 2 weeks. who wants to join me? i am a huge anime fan :)

FRANTIC β„’ : Strange Parts Only in Japan. Glad to see you both in a video!

XeLucidz Gaming : Should make that camera digital so you could link it to a Bluetooth printer so when you snap a pic ypu could send it to the printer. Keeping the aspect of having it print the picture but through a Bluetooth printer. Would be a really cool project. Would love to see it happen. Just a thought. Another idea is to modify it to have a newer iPhone modded into the camera so you have the touch screen on the back and use the flash and camera thats on the phone and many of the other components from the phone. Basically turning the camera into a digital touch screen camera with a good quality camera with the newer iPhones. Loving the videos and I would love to come check out japan and china! Congrats on the 1mil!

King Flippy Nips : 07:40 Hey, it's the iPhone guy!

Aldo Flores : Scotty and John in one single video? It seems like Christmas arrived earlier this year

springbay1 : The two most positive Youtubers on the Internets just hanging out chillin looking at techy stuff. Scotty, you should meet up with John frequently!

neofio ssi : 13:18 16:47 ---> " TOLONG JANGAN SENTUH " πŸ˜ƒ shop from indonesia ?

Simon P : Good move Scotty. Love this informative video. Also thanks to John for showing you around.

shadow_hunter104 : 999K subs. Let's get that to 1M !!! πŸ‘πŸ”₯

NAMAN SAGAR : Two of my favorite YouTubers mashup What more could you ask for

Glider : Regarding the polaroid camera, you should do a digital camera with it, that saves the photo to the SD card but ALSO PRINT THE PICTURE.

Pixelchu : Oooh nice collab! Two of my favorite travel YouTubers in one video! This’ll be very interesting.

Eric : damn. if my life wasnt consumed by anxiety, I would dive head first into Akihabara and probably never leave. :P

Lars Mathiesen : Turn the Polaroid camera into a camera. IE a digital camera with a printer. Please please ;)

Thomas Tietze : I love it. Was there from 1st of November to the 18th. Was my second time. I love Japan, the people, the culture, public traffic, everything is so nice there

Brendan Hansen : Thanks for the vid, it was amazing to see a little bit of Akihabara :3

Yael Manlangit : I did not see this collab coming, but this is easily my favorite collab of 2018 β™₯

Kenneth Hernandez : 13:47 When you watch too much anime that you kind of tell what they're talking about without subs.

Gary Walton : So funny seeing Kizuna AI from A.I.Channel on the gachapon machines at 4:34 :)

Ruben Barreiro : heya, cool video! nice to see that side of akihabara :) you remind me anthony bourdain in all its gloryness

Reyok95 : wow, I've lived in a lie, thought otaku meant crazy anime watchers.

KyuketsuNinja : you could make a beamer within the polaroid cam :D also with a rasberry pi... its an portable movie player

Chewi : I loved this. I think my first Japan trip might just be a week in akihabara hahaha

Figureight : I actually stumbled into these small alleyways not actively looking for them when I was in Akihabara a few months back. Definitely a treasure trove of strange parts!

PlaidWalker : The mutual admiration and excitement for this stuff is amazing. I love passionate people! Thank you scotty!

BeatboxNorwich : That looks amazing! Orgasmatronic <3 Haha I see they keep themselves to themselves more like Western society.. I quite like how friendly the Chinese are.

patedeuszka : You should do something for Smart Home (DIY with list of elements I can be able to buy )

Bryan Davie : for the polaroid you could rebuild it as a cool mini projector

Martin : The mint in box Famicoms in the background at 16:08... My heart literally stopped.

TheePaintballFreak : you built a iphone can you build a graphics card from parts like a 1080ti/2080ti

Daniel Lopez : Ooh i need to visit Akihabara just for the synth chips, in the chance of getting a YM3812 cheap.


Volta : Can you make a time machine out of a microwave?

derek storey : That fake grin! HOLY HELL!

kwelem 5627 : Scotty is a nice guy

Lucifer morningstar : You went to akiba and didn't get me anything?? I am hurt😣😭

BlueAurorus13 : Hearing Akihabara gives me horrifying flashbacks of oreimo

desaturated : I have been to Akihabara in 2009 and 2018. The time has changed and I feel Akihabara, while it's still great, it somehow lost the charm they had 10 years ago. And as a tech enthusiast, I also feel there is nothing "wow" in their innovation anymore. The slow down in their economy is real. While the Korean and Chinese have already caught up in terms of innovation.

CoDGplays : When is the video for the self made music coming?

Matt Elder : When I was in the Navy stationed in Yokosuka, I used to spend a LOT of my free time (and money) in Akihabara. It still looks the same over 25 years later.

JD : i think it would be cool, to somehow upgrade the polaroid camera, i mean you are famous for your cool upgrades! Loving the videos keep it up man ! :)

usethefooorce : If you take apart that camera, beware that camera flash units can deliver a HUGE electric shock if you touch the wrong contacts. (Speaking from multiple experiences...)

Xantteboy : stat track | Aug akihabara accept | factory new

Galvaxatron : Fantastic video you two! I really enjoyed this.
