The Oracle Watch is a pretty slick looking digital watch. It mixes the ancient art of telling time with the ancient Chinese philosophy of I Ching. Though I think the maker was thinking more about the ancient art of “Ka-ching I got your money”. How it works, I have no idea. It’s all pretty confusing. I think the basic idea is that it’s a fancy Magic 8-Ball for your wrist. It will guide you and share it’s wisdom, secure in the knowledge that they got your money. Still, it’s a pretty sweet looking watch.
Here’s the latest in electronic oracles, ready to predict your hum-drum future. Unlike, say the magic 8 ball, it uses digital personality assessment, and other strange voodoo to predict your future. The Mirai Scope begins by asking you about fifty personal questions, so that it can sort you into one of 236 personality types. Once it pigeonholes you, your profile is combined with some other crazy nonsense as it tries to zero in on your future course in life.
You can ask it for predictions on topics like health, wealth, and even your love life. One interesting feature is an infrared profile-sharing feature that lets you predict the future for you and your significant other. It sounds like a basic “20 questions”, narrowing down possibilities with your answers. It will cost you $28 in Japan.
