You can find capsule ball toy machines almost anywhere in Japan. The nearby supermarket has 4 of them at the main entrance. They generally contain small toys, or figures from some TV anime series. Pictured here is a "space weapon" finger LED. 4 different styles, 100 yen per capsule. Not a bad price for a keychain flashlight. Basically just the LED with the two legs set on opposite sides of 3 button batteries, with a mechanical switch for pushing one leg in to make contact. It's pretty bright, too. I may get a few more, one for each finger. Not really sure why I'd do that, though.
