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?

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.

As is spashed on the event website and proclaimed by our press kit, the event theme is:

We’ve been in love with Team Skeletonics’ human-powered exoskeleton for years, and all throughout, it's pretty much been the same mechanical and aesthetic configuration. But it now looks like they’ve been refining in the background, and might be bringing something new out to play.

Introduced way back in 2008, seven years after the Segway, Toyota's Winglet finally got to come out and play last week; practical trials are underway. Like the Segway (pretty much exactly), it’s a single rider, self-balancing mobility device. Toyota calls it a robot. Yeah... No.

Luceo developed the "Fullauto StrainEye LSM-9000LE" to accurately and easily measure the strain of glass and plastic products.

"This is a two-dimensional strain measuring device that is easy to operate. Conventional measuring devices can only measure a single point of a sample, but the Fullauto StrainEye LSM-9000LE can measure the entire area of a sample."
