To assess the relative merits of the Panasonic HC X-900, Canon Legria HF G10 and JVC Everioo GZ-GX1 they find some Japanese businessmen willing to sing along to the edited results in an authentic Karaoke bar. The Presenting pair meets up with Asimo - the amazingly advanced bi-pedal robot developed by Honda. They also attend a virtual pop concert - where the fans are all real, but the performers are computer generated. Next on their itinerary is a visit to a Kendo Dojo.

Episode: Mediterranean

Polly and Jason’s quest begins several thousand feet above the Alps, jumping out of a plane to test the panoramic images produced by two 360 degree video cameras – the Sony Bloggie 360 and the plain old iPhone4 augmented by a GoPanoMicro. Next, they take to the road to test-drive the new PSP Vita gaming console –only to be interrupted by the YouTube sensation that is Rollaman, or John Yves Blondeau as he’s also known. To test the latest in 3DTV technology, the pair charters a state-of-the-art yacht and head for Monaco harbor.

Episode: USA West (California)

Jason and Pollyanna begin their US odyssey in Silicon Valley - probably the most valuable bit of gadget real estate on earth. This trip sees the team testing the performance of desktop computers on the very doorsteps of the companies which made them.  The Sony Vaio VPCL22Z1E, the ASUS ET2700 INTS and the Apple iMac 27” all come under scrutiny. On the road to Los Angeles, the pair test the technology in two of the latest cutting-edge smartphones, the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Sony Experia S plus the weird and wonderful NeuroskyNecomimi Cat Ears.

Episode: USA East (New York)

Jason and Pollyanna arrive in Manhattan on a mission – to use the New York streets to test some of the most sought-after gadgets of 2012. They start with testing the latest Bluetooth headsets on the east river by doing some urban jet skiing, and that’s not all. In the city that never sleeps, and survives on caffeine, they get the verdict from native New Yorkers on three of the latest coffee capsule machines – the Dolce Gusto Circlo, the Tasimo T65 and the DelonghiLatismma. Finally, the biggest test of all. The iPad 3 goes head-to-head with the Kindle Fire in the Green Hat Challenge– an against-the-clock treasure hunt around New York City, using only a tablet or smartphone as the interface.
