Only in Japan: Giant Robot Rhinoceros Beetle
The classic anime series Patlabor was set in the late 90’s/ early 2000’s. In it, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police use giant humanoid robots to fight crime.

Eat ‘Em Up on the Wii With the Munchables
What do you get if you combine the charm of Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy with the gimmicks of classic Pac-Man and Kirby, and also the recent Prey the Stars? Not a mess, as you might think; that does sound like quite a combination, doesn’t it?

Canon Eos 450d Not a Camera at All, Actually a USB Flash Drive?
What do you expect to happen when you pop the lens off the front of your Canon EOS 450D camera? Certainly not this. That’s because this isn’t an digital camera at all. It’s actually a intricately detailed 2GB USB flash drive version of the popular digital camera.
