The cellphone skin analyzer

avonIt's getting harder and harder to take seriously some of the stuff that's coming out of Japan these days. Avon Cosmetics Japan says they're going to start using WisdomTex's software which uses the built-in digital camera in cellphones to do close-up analysis of people's skin. The idea is that Avon's sales people don't have to receive any special tranining, they can just put their cellphone up against someone's face (something we're sure the average Japanese person will feel completely comfortable with), and then the software can make suggestions about which Avon products would be best suited for them.
