Only in Japan - Hako Vision

I guess someone thought this would be a popular product, but to me it looks like a gag ranking right up there with the Pet Rock.

It's Hako Vision ("hako" = "box"), a box with a mirror reflector inside. You scan the barcode on the side of the box with your smartphone, then place the phone on top of the box and watch the action from the phone on the reflector screen.

Price is in the $8-$10 (USD) apiece range. From Bandai. It may be a good thing that I still don't have a smartphone.
