Bandai's "Tuttuki Bako" is the Finger-Poking Game We've All Been Waiting For

Ah, Japan: where your dreams of creating that one useless and barely entertaining technological marvel may come true. Take this new “Tuttuki Bako” game from Bandai, for example (via Technabob). Essentially, it’s a box with an LCD screen and a hole on the side for you to put your finger in. The screen then displays your finger in pixelated form along with other objects — like a stick man or a panda clutching a ball — for you to virtually poke and prod.

Okay, so it’s not exactly a “game,” per se; more like a digital version of a bug caught in a jar. There may not be any objectives for this little device, but it still certainly seems like some sort of abandoned peripheral for the old-school Game Boy. This being from Japan though, I think we can all guess what this concept will eventually develop into.

The Japanese are mad… But nonetheless wealthy. If we accept their madness we are contributing to the Japanese methodology that says… If they buy it, they’ll want more of the same.
A strange realism, but true
