This is the kind of gadget we'd assume was a joke -- if we didn't know that it wasn't. Bandai
-- makers of such useful time wasters as the Tamagotchi
and the little doohickey that helps women "understand" men
-- has just unveiled a new device which should make you feel even less
comfortable inside your own skin. Partnering up with Japanese cosmetics company FANCL, Bandai's Skin Expert is a tiny device which you apparently hold up to your face to receive detailed information on its 'quality' and health. Now, all of the information we can find about this little guy is in Japanese, so excuse us for our mystification on how the doodad works, but we'll tell you this: we're definitely buying it if it shows up on Sephora. The Bandai Skin Expert will be unleashed in Japan on November 30th for ¥3,750 (about $40). There's one more super informative shot after the break.
