Photographer and pin-up model Julie Watai, whom Kotaku has featured before, is releasing a magazine version of her Hardware Girls photos.


The photos feature girls with old game consoles, arcade circuit boards, PC parts, and other various electronics. You know, hardware.

Osaka-born Watai is not only a big nerd and popular pin-up model, she's a talented photographer and multimedia artist, too.

Volume 1 of this magazine is based on Watai's 2010 book by the same name, which featured her photos of 25 different models with game hardware and electronics.
