We are Nerd Nite Tokyo, bringing geeks and drinks together in the Kanto region since June 2016!


NN19_bannerNerd Nite #19: Analog

Space may be the final frontier, but there are ways to get there that don’t involve rockets or VR helmets: space analog missions! And what better way to share the beauty of space (and keep cabin fever at bay) than to make some art. And at the micro end of things, we ask: what the heck is a quantum dot anyway?

As usual, drinks and food and video game sound effects await at Nagatacho GRID. Be there and be square!

Speakers:

  • Ayako Ono — Space Art and Space Tourism: Sights and Sounds Inspired by the Cosmos
  • Mark Holmes — Hot Dots: Controlling Light at the Quantum Level
  • Danielle DeLatte — Space Analogs: Blasting Off Without Leaving Earth

About Nerd Nite

Nerd Nite is “the Discovery Channel with beer”, a worldwide monthly event series that mixes presentations, performances, trivia, demos, music, and of course drinking. Nerd Nite Tokyo events are held in English.

Get involved (we want you!)

If you are interested in presenting or volunteering, send us an email (tokyo@nerdnite.com), message us on Facebook (fb.com/nerdnitetokyo) or send a DM on Twitter (@nntokyo). You do not have to be a (science) presentation pro! Anyone — scientists, engineers, artists, makers, hackers, historians, science fans or storytellers — can give a talk at Nerd Nite about their own projects or just anything they find cool. Our past speakers include a medieval sword expert, artificial intelligence researchers, a hackerspace guru, a videogame artist and a nuclear physicist.

Nerd Nite Tokyo is a non-profit endeavor and everyone involved is a volunteer. Money raised goes towards swag for the audience, drinks for the speakers, equipment for the show, and to support the non-profit Yokohama Theatre Group. Our venue is kindly provided by Nagatacho GRID.
