Japan's passion for all things miniature has gone a step further with the introduction of the Mini-Mini automobile.
Ideal for a family of one, or for people who enjoy being pointed at, the Mini-Mini is said by some to be an ideal babe magnet (if the lucky lady doesn't mind travelling upon the driver's shoulders).
But the craving to miniaturise everything isn't stopping with cars. Last week Japanese scientists miniaturised Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a bid to save space.
