Untitled Two-Man Tokyo Tech Show 
Our cliché cop-out of a name is (EVEN NOW) is still holding strong... it's kinda sticking. If anyone's got something better, leave a comment and if we use your suggestion we'll send you a super powerful laser or something. That's not joke. We've got one.

Episode 1: Geektastic in Akihabara

Episode 2: Shiny in Shibuya

Episode 3: Shenanigans in Shinjuku

Episode 4: Nerding-Out in Nakano

Episode 5: Ginza & Sony Event
This week, AkihabaraNews contributor Nayalan Moodley and editor Reno J. Tibke sat around in narcissistic Ginza Ward waxing geeky on the latest J-tech news and taking a quick look at some Sony home electronics concepts and prototypes.

Now, as we said when we posted raw video of Sony's Short-Throw 4K projector:

"Ginza's kind of like a $59 sandwich."

That's because it's impossible to justify the price. Sure, you could eat uhhh...a panda meat sandwich that might ring up around $59 (and be marginally hilarious), but it would be wildly immoral and practically useless. Tokyo's famed Ginza Ward, for all it's lavish, boutique shopping and Maserati dealerships and exclusive this and that, is still just kind of...meh.

Point is, at the end of the day, the only reason to eat a panda sandwich is to be able to tell some other idiot that you ate a panda sandwich. Makes sense, right?

But, we went there anyway because the Sony building is there, and Sony might be starting to get their groove back! Have a watch to see their projected table display, ceiling display, wall display, and that beautiful 4K projector. Also, in addition to the Sony Q&A:

Episode 5's Covered Stories Include

Feedback?
Do give us your suggestions for future locations, your feedback, your criticism, let us know if you want to hear some of Nayalan's Nordic death metal in the intro, 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.

Now, have a watch. Share. Like. Sociallymedia us. Let us know.

...and maybe, just maybe win a badass laser.

Dyson's 360 Eye Robo-Vacuum Arrives Late, and That is Totally Fine
This is really a high-end home appliance - as a product, more akin to a washing machine or refrigerator than a smartphone - and in this realm, a brand new line being six months late is better than on-time but undercooked.

Seavac has been researching the conventional coating technologies using TiN, Ti-Al, and CrN, and developed ZERO-I, a new coating that combines the advantages of all three.

"The hardness is about 3,500 HV. This coating is heat-resistant to over 1,000 degrees. Conventional Ti-Al coatings were heat-resistant to nearly 900 degrees, but this coating has even better heat resistance, and hardness as well."

With Thanko's Night-Vision Scope Camera, you can see clearly something that you cannot usually see in the dark.

There is a 7-level adjustable infrared mode to see objects in dark places. A 3X power telescope and 2X digital zoom lens enable you to observe distant objects. Also, you are able to shoot still/moving images with it so that it might be fun to use it on your friends - scare them at night-time and record their reaction!

It is also usable in the day time as well by using the infrared cut filter attached to the body.

The YouTube spot features(ed) a seductively fem-British medical professional breathily placating and reassuring an implicitly male patient struggling with uhhh...struggling with himself...a little too much. It’s well beyond innuendo, but then in the reveal it turns out she’s not talking about self-interfering at all (watch below).

REVIEW: Casio Selfie-Cam (Me, Myself & I)

The Casio EX-TR35 is a peculiar beast...
