Bandai Mirai Scope: the Digital Fortune Teller

by Paul Strauss

Think of the latest contraption from Japan’s Bandai as a virtual soothsayer. The pocket-sized device uses a digital personality assessment, along with a dash hocus pocus and other less-than-scientific gibberish to predict your future.

Bandai Mirai Scope Virtual Fortune Teller

The Mirai Scope starts out by asking its owner about fifty personal questions, which help to assign you one of 236 unique personality types (you can try out the actual test here, if you’re up for a little Japanese). Once you’ve been successfully pigeonholed by the Mirai, your profile is combined with some “biorhythm” BS to help triangulate your course in life.

You’ll be able to ask for predictions on specific topics such as health, wealth, employment and your love life. There’s even some sort of weird infrared profile-sharing feature which lets you predict the future for you and your significant other if you care to beam your information through the air.

It’s likely that the Mirai Scope will remain a Japanese exclusive, but if you’re willing to go the extra mile to fly one in, you should be able to come late March for ¥2,980 (appx. $28 USD).
