Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show 
We're still kinda working on that title - suggestions are welcome! Episode 2 does shave about 8 minutes compared to our first outing in Akihabara, and it's still packed with dorky goodness. Both fortunately and sadly, the absence of our drunken friend, Mr. Kikuchi, was really the key to keeping Episode 2 manageably watchable in the time department.

So Like, What About This?
For this our second venture, we shot in one of Tokyo's, in fact, one of Japan's most iconic neighborhoods, Shibuya. While we were mostly stationary for Episode 1, this time we bounce around to several locations. 

Do give us your venue suggestions for future locations, your feedback, your criticism, let us know if anyone thinks Nayalan doesn't look nearly hardcore enough to be into death metal, any corrections, call-outs, tips. If you just wanna make fun of us, we can take it. Trolls with flair and originality will receive extra points and a cookie.

Have a watch. Let us know.

Breakdown: EPISODE 2
AkihabaraNews' contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke stand around in iconic Shibuya waxing geeky on the latest tech news. This week, we shot in several locations: just outside the train station, whilst traversing the giant "scramble intersection," and in a few nice spots on nice narrow streets.

REVIEW: CASIO EX-FR10 Action Cam (GALLERY; VIDEO) - AkihabaraNews.com
Sony has changed up the form factor a bit, JVC and Ricoh have gone for full-on assault drop Space Marine armour (for the glory of the imperium of man!), and Panasonic went with the duo of innovative mounting option and first-to-the-market 4k for theirs. In the end though, they all did basically the same thing: capturing the action. The one Japanese electronics behemoth that was noticeably absent from the fray was CASIO… until now.

The steadily plodding iterations of iRobot’s Roomba and its legion of copycats are old hat, and the collective We aren’t really impressed anymore. While the 360 Eye performs the same task, it stands out, and just kinda has that new robot smell. The talking points/broad strokes/things to know are:
