Bandai's 'Aqua Dance' holds water

Gizmo claims to utilize nanotech coating that imbues water droplets with mercury-like qualities.

More wacky distractions from the idea factory of Japanese toy maker Bandai, this one claiming to utilize nanotech coating that imbues water droplets with mercury-like qualities. Aqua Dance is probably not going to hold your attention for long beyond the initial novelty. But as with anything from the land of weird tech, this immediately carries a special "geek" tag.

We do know this takes off from Aqua Drop, a similar gizmo where you feed water through the top and watch the beads slide, bounce, scatter, or plop into holes along a handheld maze. Can anything be more riveting than watching the way H2O moves?

If this one holds water with you, watch for it in March, in Moon Night or Rainy Day colors. You never know when your friendly gadget shop may just ship this in from Japan.
