They say there’s different strokes for different folks, and while I’m not sure how much entertainment I’d get from watching a tiny powered car race around the inside of a bowl, I’m sure someone, somewhere would. But I will give props where props are due. The MM Circuit Mini Racer from Gakken comes with an impressively tiny car that’s just 0.98 inches long and weighs only 3 grams. It doesn’t have any steering capabilities, but it will race around the inside of the included plastic bowl (or a bowl of your choosing) thanks to what I assume is a small electric motor inside, and not just a flywheel.

It comes with a charger/launcher that’s powered by 2xAA batteries and a Japanese-only manual, but I’m just not sure if there’s enough novelty here to justify the $53 price tag from the Japan Trend Shop.
