KONBINI RAID!
Bizarre Best; Minute or Less

コンビニkonbini, pronounced “cone-bee-knee,” is Japanese for 'Convenience Store.' Occasionally anchoring entire neighborhoods, J-convenience stores are indispensable, vital hubs of commerce. Full of the delicious, the interesting, and the inexplicable, they are the glue that holds Japanese society together.
Not really. But, 
kind of.

Today's Target: Gambling for Anime Geekery

Now remember kids, If all the 7-11sLawsonsFamily MartsYamazakis, and the occasional AM/PM, etc. were to suddenly disappear, the Japanese economy would collapse. Which would then collapse Asia’s economy. Which would then collapse the American economy. Which would then collapse the global economy.
No, not really. But also, kind of.

So remember, support your local konbini.

App-Enabled Geiger Counter for Smartphones
Okay, we were skeptical on this one at first glance, but these devices do exist: what we’ve got here is a plug-and-play Geiger counter that fits any smartphone headphone jack (iOS or Android - no love for Blackberry until they finally give up and accept their Google overlords). It’s definitely the smallest we’ve ever seen.
ATLAS is Coming for ASIMO - AkihabaraNews.com
