PEBLWEAR | About creator

Yuhei Akatsuka

Career in digital device manufacturer based in Japan from 2002. Experience in product engineering, to product planning, strategy, and new project development. Strength in user interface design and engineering.

Inspired from passed works related to touch interface and sound solution development at SONY, I have started to experiment this original project from 2018, looking for the new possibility of music experience, which is my daily excitement. And now, looking for initial support to launch it as a product.

Personally fell in love with mountain biking and snowboarding, resulted moving from Tokyo to Nagano, where 1997 winter olympic have held. Enjoying stunning nature and activity’s.

Love music, listening 365 days per year. No music, No life.
