This Japanese headset is a godsend to all the balding men (and women, I guess) out there as it promises to restore that receding hairline. I don?t know if it actually works but you got to give the Japanese credit for innovation and having the guts to market it.

So how does the gadget work? It has something they call “spicula electrodes” which stimulates the scalp with low frequency electric current to improve blood circulation. (I wonder if one can actually get electrocuted and lose the remaining hair!) The device was developed by Kanaza University and is on sale in Japan for 128,000 yen, or about $1,000!

Beauty never comes cheap, does it?
