Crave is hopping a plane to Japan. How cool is that?

If there's a place that's more of a sensory overload than Las Vegas, it's Tokyo, which makes it a perfect place to host what many say is the best consumer electronics show in the world.

And beginning Tuesday, Crave will be combing through the halls of the Makuhari Messe exhibition center in Chiba, just outside Tokyo, to find the coolest, weirdest, and most useful stuff that the electronics giants of the world have brought to Ceatec 2008. Ceatec, by the way, stands for Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies. Keep checking back this week for photos, video, and more.

There's going to be cell phones galore, 3D televisions, tiny displays, and lots of sustainable technology on display. Oh, and this is Japan, so lots and lots of robots. There's a lot to sift through, and I'd like to hear from you about the kinds of stuff you want to see.

And no worries, the unicycle-riding robot from Murata is already on the list. What else should I keep an eye out for?

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
