Japan loves miniature things, and they have so many items so impressive that always blow my mind away.
Recently I saw this gacha machine that was selling miniature classic toys, and it had in bold letters saying "actually playable!" So I put in the 200 yen and got myself one of these tiny mazes.
For size comparison, here is a small nail clipper.
And yes, it actually works! The stick there tilts the whole board in 360 degrees, directing the tiniest metal ball I have ever seen from the start point to its goal.
Is it fun? Well... for a couple of minutes I guess. I do not think I will be going to it every night, but at least it makes a cute little display, that actually works.
