Modellismo writes "During the Tokyo MAKE:Meeting 04 Gakken displayed the prototype of the Japanino (Arduino clone). It will be released next spring in the Otona no Kagaku (in Japanese it means 'Science toys for adults') magazine series with a Persistence of Vision plastic Toy with color LEDs. The price tag will be less than 3500 yen (ca$35) and it will make the Japanese Arduino scene the biggest in the world in a couple of months, as the magazine will probably sell what the original Arduino sold worldwide in the last years."
