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.
