Run quick: Electronic fat meter on its way from Japan


Do we really need this? A precise electronic, abdominal fat meter that can measure the amount of fat deep inside of you, even around your organs? The AB-101, made by Tanika Corp, does its thing in about 30 seconds while you lie calmly on your back with no idea that you're about to learn something about yourself that may surprise you. I can just see personal trainers employing this machine at gymnasiums all over the country, as yet another tool to scare you into exercising. This sadistic device sells for 294,000 yen (about $2,750 USD).
