Tuttuki Bako: 8-Bit AR?

This pokey AR toy might not be as spectacular as something like LevelHead, but give it props for thinking, er, inside the box:

Here at ThinkGeek we’ve seen Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion but never have we encountered anything quite like the Tuttuki Bako Virtual Finger Game. When we caught sight of this wacky electronic game on the Japanese blogs, we figured it must be a joke… but no it’s 100% real and fantastically crazy. Simply stick your finger in the hole and a virtual representation appears on the screen. Then you can use your virtual finger to play all kinds of cool mini games… from swinging a panda to having a karate fight with a tiny little man. It’s so odd yet so wonderful. Domo Arigato Japan!
