#1683: Applookation

Those of a nervous disposition should look away now. It seems there is a subset of humanity, mostly females, who enjoy squeezing greasy spots.

Today’s invention is a touchscreen-based application designed to cater to such a minority interest.

A photograph would appear on-screen of one of a large collection of real spots and blackheads.

Squeezing the screen radially inwards towards the centre of each spot, would result in the display of an image of the spot’s contents expertly cleaned out (a suitably-realistic plopping sound effect could also be provided).


  1. Thanks to Anders for providing me with this link. It seems it already exists: http://www.techpin.com/popping-zits-on-your-iphone-with-zit-picker/

  2. It turns out that the iTunes site search is broken and so here are lots more I should have found when searching for ‘zit’
    None of these have photos of real faces though. They could create a FaceTime version too http://www.apple.com/mac/facetime/
