This week we feature some video of cutting edge tech from Tokyo, and a look into a project that Microsoft hopes will help improve education in emerging markets.

CNET News.com's Michael Kanellos took a trip to Tokyo recently, and came back with some interesting video of the culture of technology, among other things. Here he takes a trip to Kappabashi-dori, a food lovers' paradise, complete with a cornucopia plastic food.

Kanellos also visited National, a sister company of Panasonic, which specializes in lifestyle items and appliances that enhance the lives of people in Japan. Check out the best of what he saw when he visited their headquarters in Tokyo.

And CNET News.com's Ina Fried spoke with Microsoft's Will Poole last week about a new technology the company is developing, called Multitouch. Designed to help multiple students use the same computer, it's an investment in education in places that are in desperate need of a technological solution to limited resources. Check out the demo and hear about the project.

As always, see all of CNET News.com's most recent videos here.

Tokyo's Kappabashi district is a haven for the food-obsessed. If you?re a chef, in the restaurant business or just love food, you'll want to see this.

CNET News.com's Michael Kanellos took a look at the best of what the company National has to offer during a recent trip to Tokyo.

To bring technology to emerging markets, Microsoft has an ongoing project called Unlimited Potential, the company's answer for classrooms with only one computer.
