最初は2011年に始めたこのブログ。当初はgoogle sitesを使っていました。きっかけは2011年のロボカップジュニアジャパンオープンで3T RobotさんやΣさんのロボット/ブログに刺激されたことでした。まだ二階が二階にあった時代ですね〜(わかる人にはわかる)。


一つ驚いたことが、今回の2017年のロボカップジュニア世界大会に出場した日本チームの2チームがこのブログに載せた10円スイッチ(坂センサー)を使っていたことです。彼らのインタビューに訳あって参加したのですが、めっちゃびっくりしました。いや〜、載せてみるもんやな〜 とつくづく感じましたね笑

2011年なんて完全な無名状態だったしチーム名もrobotics Xではなかったときなので完全に対象読者を日本人に設定して内容もほとんど日本語だったのですが、2015年のロボカップ世界大会の動画のコメント欄では外国チームが「ここのチームのブログだ。日本語だけど。」と書いているのを見て驚きました。やっぱりもっとビッグな考え、世界規模で作っとけばよかったな〜と思いました。

「世界大会の記事を書く!」とか言ってすぐ次の大会で忙しくなって結局「世界大会練習日」とかで終わっているシリーズとかもたくさんあります... そんな投稿時間も内容もある意味いい加減な部分が多かったと思いますが、読者の皆さん、長い間本当にありがとうございました。



Dear viewers of my blog(if there are any at this point lol)

As I have posted on my previous post, I will be studying at the University of Cambridge from October this year. That being said, I will be ending my blog post with this one. Don't worry, I won't delete any of the content(until livedoor decides to on day perhaps). 

When I began this blog, it was completely meant for a Japanese audience. But it was pretty surprising to see youtube comments on my video with a link to this blog from a English speaking user. It was my shortcoming to not see the English audience and only post content(especially techinical content) in Japanese. Sorry about that. 

Anyway, thanks for reading. And I will always be welcoming emails regarding robotics or any question that I can answer. Look at my profile and you will find my email. 

Thank you one last time, and good bye!

This week, I was officially offered a place to read Engineering at the University of Cambridge, Homerton College for the next 4 years. Simultaneously, in July, I was elected as one of the 96 members of the Masayoshi Son Foundation. 



Reflection/Future Plans

Almost two years has past since I did a “reflection” type post with regards to ending my participation in RCJ/WRO. For me, I think these two years has been the most life changing time that I have experienced.

In early 2016, although I didn’t participate in competitions as a competitor, it was quite difficult to set my mind to my school studies and university admission straight away. Honestly, for some time I underestimated the difficulty of what was going to come, and never thought I would be studying hard as much as I worked on my robotics projects in the past. At one point I even considered participating in the 2016 WRO competition.

While that was me back in early 2016, as time went on, there came a point when I was no longer able to concentrate on my robotics projects because of all the work from IB and university admissions(and I now see this as a great thing because it really forced me to get focused on work). In the end, especially during the last two month before my IB exams, I remember myself working hard as much(or even more than) as I worked before world competitions. 

In hindsight, I would have never been able to obtain such results if I wasn't able to fully set my mind and push my limits, which would have never been possible in the first place without the people who where there support me and create the environment for me to work hard. I have to thank my friends who were always there to help me through and at times leave me alone; teachers who answered all my questions quickly every time, provided me with an unbelievable amount of past papers, reviewed my essays, and even did practice interviews; and especially my parents who supported me with pretty much every aspect of my life. Even more, I cannot thank my mom enough for supporting me with 200% of her effort for the past two years, not to mention what she did for me over the past 18 years. Realistically speaking I wouldn’t have even applied to Cambridge or the Masayoshi Son Foundation, if it wasn’t for my mom. Thank you so much. 

Although I mentioned “Future Plans” in the title, there are no apparent/specific plans except for actually traveling to the UK in late September, and beginning my course from October. However, I have some general insights and plans for the next few years. While my university studies will be of highest priority, I will in one way or another try to tie in some robotics projects in my life(most likely from some society I would join..?). In addition, at the end of my 4 years, I would like to know exactly what I will be doing in my coming life, and if possible begin to work and be active according to a good plan. Of course that would mean finding and taking internship opportunities and challenging my self to unfamiliar areas. 4 years later I want to be in a position with very specific future plans, what problem(s) I would like to be solving/working on, how I will be using my knowledge and experience to address that problem, whether I will become and entrepreneur or not, etc.

Although I didn’t emphasize as much, I was chosen to be one of the first year members of the Masayoshi Son Foundation. It’s only been one and a half months after all the members were announced, but I have already been able to participate in many exciting meetings so far. It is truly exciting when I think about what is to come. As part of this foundation with so many people that have amazing abilities and extraordinary past performances, I will push my limits even further to make a real contribution to this world. 

Thank you for your time to read this brief reflection of mine.
