The EH-SA42 doesn’t even need any water to do it. So yes, what we have here are a pair of simple humidifiers. Who knows if it will help your skin, but at least you’ll have a honking huge webcam looking thing on your desk. Both models will arrive in Japan this November, where moistness will reign.

Panasonic Viera SV-MC55 1Seg TVWhen you think about Panasonic’s line of Viera TVs, what comes to mind? Probably a large HDTV hanging on a wall right? Me too, but the latest Vieras from Panasonic come in a tiny form factor. I’m talking a screen size of just 4.3″.

That’s because these are portable 1Seg TVs that let you record video on both SD and SDHC memory cards. If that isn’t enough for you, it can double as a digital photo frame by displaying images stored on your SD/SDHC memory cards. Not bad for a little tiny Viera huh?
