Fujitsu have released a PC-based skincare device in Japan that analyses facial skin quality using a USB mini-camera. Known as the Hada Chekki V01, the product uses specially developed software to determine whether skincare is required based on a facial close-up image provided by the USB camera.

The enlarged image of the skin picture is compared with previously recorded pictures to indicate any deterioration in "texture" and "degree of beauty white".

Japan Today (www.japantoday.com) reported that the Fujitsu Hada Chekki V01 is available for 47,000 yen. The USB scope, software and a beauty care explanation book are included in the package.
