More Ridiculously Expensive Fruits From Japan!

Fruit can be VERY expensive in Japan, we have shown you 1K grapes, $200 watermelons (but they ARE square) and melons for $5500.
With these numbers, this lone strawberry may seem cheap.

Beautiful Princess strawberries are a jumbo variety and considered a special treat !
The above one is currently on sale for the low price of 10740 yen (including shipping), the strawberry is 3 times the size of a normal strawberry,  and 80 grams of sugar sweetness- only 50 boxed sets will be sold.
Will it be a popular Valentine's Day gift in Japan?  I would spend my $135 elsewhere...

Toylet- Videogames You Play With Your Pee

Coming to a Tokyo metro station near you (well 4 to be exact) are toilet video games!  Sega has launched the Toylet, which has a variety of games based on your urine stream.
The games are male only so far.

"A pressure sensor in the urinal measure the strength and the location of the urine stream as it hits the basin.
An LCD screen displays the graphics and rewards the strength, length and accuracy of the pee through a points system. 
One of the games challenges players to blast graffiti off the wall with a high-pressure flow.
Another title calculates exactly how much urine the player has produced while ‘Milk from Nose’ puts the toilet user up against the previous person in a challenge to see who has the strongest flow.
In ‘The North Wind and Her’ the player lifts up a woman’s skirt with high-pressure blasts in their role as the wind."  Daily Mail UK

The last game sounds a bit pervy... but I guess what can you expect from a game based on your pee stream?
