“In Japan, purikura (プリクラ) refers to a photo sticker booth or the product of such a photo booth. The name is a shortened form of the registered trademark Purinto Kurabu (プリント倶楽部). The term derives from the English print club.” (knowledge via wikipedia)
The first Purikura machine was called Print Club machine, made by Atlus in 1995.
In Amsterdam, just like in any other city, bicycles aren’t pretty. Bikes are used every day and they need to be kept outside because nobody has a shed, and only a few get to live on a ground floor. Children’s Bicycles are also kept outside, mostly locked with a thick, fat chain so they won’t get stolen.
Appdikted @mimiberlin has been keeping his eye out for these colorful mini bikettes. <click that link to see more images taken earlier
