Sure, Sanyo's PR claims this camera is the "world's first waterproof full HD camera," but unfortunately for them Kodak beat them to the punch.

The predictably named successor to the Xacti E1 has finally arrived, and it's just as waterproof as the original. The Xacti E2 records MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 video at 640 x 480, snaps stills at 8-megapixels, captures content onto SD / SDHC cards and features a 2.5-inch flip-out LCD for easy viewing of w...

Sanyo's waterproof TV managed to slip under our CeBIT radar last week, but not for long. It appears they were showing off the sexily-named 42LM4WPR-E (oh yeah, speak nerdy to us), a 42-inch HDTV that stands out among a sea of HDTVs (pun intended) by being one of the few waterproof models on the ma...
