Toshiba have released a video to show off its abilities (below), and if you’re thinking there’s a space in your life for this little fella, availability has been pegged at “two to three weeks.”

If we had a thousand dollars to burn we’d probably give this a spin, but at the risk of repeating ourselves again, it was the Courier that really got us excited…

Here’s Toshiba spreading the love about their new creation:
