The EyeClops is the kind of toy we wish we’d had as kids. Your kids will go nuts over this chunky bionic eye, which can be wired up to a TV and used to examine the world around you at magnifications of 100x, 200x or 400x. And, take it from us, that’s big. The manual recommends inspecting your household pets with the EyeClops, or jumping around and then using it to “check out the tiny beads of sweat as they exit the pores of your skin!” We’re amazed that any self-respecting kid would actually need a manual to tell them stuff like that, but never mind.
EyeClops, 7,980 yen. Available from major toy and department stores.© Metropolis magazine
