Human Relations Calculator: Does Your Relationship Add Up?

This might look like an ordinary calculator on the surface, but if you dig deeper, you’ll discover that this oddity from Japan not only can do math, it can tell you and your significant other what your future will hold. If you believe that sort of thing, of course.

Just punch your date of birth into Bandai’s new Human Relations Calculator, press a button, and it’ll tell you your fortune. And if you add a couple of birthdays together, you can find out what sort of a relationship you have with the other subject of your math problems. Divide, and you’ll get fortunes for your neighbors and family; subtract the dates and you’ll find out how you jive with co-workers; add ’em and learn about your friends; or multiply and learn about your love interests.

I guess the good news in all of this hocus-pocus is that the Human Relations Calculator only works in Japanese, so you don’t have to worry about what it says – unless, of course, you happen to speak the language. There are also a handful of mini-games in case you grow tired of the forune telling shenanigans. If you’ve just got to try one of these, they’re available from Amazon Japan for ¥2885 (appx. $30 USD). There’s also a simplified web version you can play with here. It all makes perfect sense now, right?
