'Baby Quasar': An electronic Fountain of Youth?

Some supposedly swear by it.

At first glance this might look like some kind of LED earbud, but it's actually not even close: Try an "electronic elixir" instead.

It's tough enough for us to have faith in such "anti-aging products," especially when one has a name like the "Baby Quasar." It sounds more like an astrological term or a crib toy than a wrinkle-zapping device.

That, however, is exactly what it's purported to be, exploiting the anti-inflammatory effects of red and amber light to "promote fibroblasts to increase the body's production of collagen," according to Popgadget, and apparently some people swear by it. We'll have to take their word for it; at $449, it's too steep of a price for us to pay just to find out first-hand.
