Japanese PC and electronics retailer TSUKUMO has just unveiled their latest collaboration: Hatsune Miku styled laptop computers from Acer and Dell! These laptops are available for limited preorder within Japan starting today, and will ship on July 12th.

These laptops clock in at 14″ for the Acer, and 13.3″ for the Dell, and are designed for long-lasting and ultraportable use (powerhouse users beware!). Each one comes with it’s own unique color themes and/or decorations to the shell, and even the touchpads! The Acer is listed at 127,440 Yen ($1,185 USD) after taxes, while the Dell is available for 116,640 JPY ($1,084 USD) after taxes.

The Acer SF314-56-A58U/MIKU adopts a full turquoise colored body, and Hatsune Miku silhouettes on the backside of the screen, as well as the touchpad. The main visual art for Acer×HATSUNE MIKU was drawn by Agonasubi! The theme is ‘activeness’, and features Miku in athletic-wear. Agonasubi notably illustrated the art for the hugely popular Hatsune Miku song TODAY THE FUTURE.

It’s been 5 years since Rohto’s Digi-Eye eye drop launched a collaboration with Hatsune Miku, and it’s all coming to an end this month. Starting from July onward, Rohto’s Digi-Eye packaging will undergo a new design and the Miku design will be discontinued along with the AR app. For this one last farewell, and as thanks for continued support from all the Miku fans, Rohto has prepared us final farewell gifts.

From this moment onward until June 30th, purchases of Digi-Eye at the associated stores in Akihabara will come with original smartphone stickers featuring the adorable Miku model by Kasoku Sato. The stickers come in 4 unique designs on a limited stock, so be sure to grab them before they’re gone!


Furthermore, there’s also a rare fifth design exclusive to the web lottery. On the newly revamped official Digi-Eye x Miku site are areas for fans to “make their farewell promises with Miku” from making sure to properly rest their eyes from now on to continuing to enjoy the digital world.  Fans that made their promises and followed Digi-Eye on Twitter will be entering a web lottery for a full set of the stickers as a “proof of promise”, limited to 5 winners only.

If you’re living in Japan, be sure to look out for the stores in Akihabara below!

BZITA, a maker of anime-themed accessories and jewelry, has announced the upcoming release for their Hatsune Miku mobius ring. The ring takes subtle design accents from the skirt of Hatsune Miku’s V4X outfit design, and has mobius curve to signify infinity. Now you can have a ring to symbolize your infinite love for Miku!

The ring, made of metal, can be worn on your finger, or even as a necklace using the included string. The ring measures 19mmm on the inside, has a 2.5mm wall thickness, and a width of 4.3mm. The ring is available for preorder now from BZITA’s online store for 119 Yuan ($18 USD), and is expected to ship in late June 2019.

However, ordering from BZITA’s store from overseas is difficult since they ship only within China. Luckily, it’s also available from Moeyu’s Tmall store! (Must be logged in to view the page)

Thankfully, there’s plenty of Tmall-compatible agent and proxy services, which should make ordering this ring much easier. One quick example is Taobaofocus, but feel free to use any proxies that suit your preference! Tmall orders are expected to ship a little later in July 2019.

MOEYU also lists BZITA’s various other Hatsune Miku bracelets, charms and rings on their store, so be sure to check those out to see if you’d like to bundle those in!
