Funny Japanese video (Hat tip to Asianoffbeat)

Ajinomoto Stadium is officially known as Tokyo Stadium (東京スタジアム) and is located in Chōfu, Tokyo, Japan. Completed in March 2001, it is the first stadium in Japan that offered its naming rights, which was sold to Ajinomoto Co. for a 5-year period (Mar 2003 to Feb 2008), thus the name Ajinomoto Stadium.

The stadium is the home of the J. League football teams F.C. Tokyo and Tokyo Verdy 1969.

Japanese toy manufacturer Bandai is introducing a new high-tech toy… ‘Hex Bug’, a translucent robot modelled after real cockroaches.

The robotic bug has a size of H33×W60×D60 (mm), weighs around 16g and came in 5 colours.

It has six legs, a touch sensor that tells it to change directions when it hits a wall, a micro monitor that makes it vibrate like a cell phone, and a mic sensor that lets it scuttle away when you make loud noises. [Tokyomango]

The retail price for a Hex Bug is 1,995 yen (~USD17); you can order these from Strapya.
