Nintendo's handheld gaming system can respond to noise and touch, so why not movement? Online sources are reporting that the DS will be getting a camera to accompany Face Training.

Nintendo's Japanese page for Face Training shows the camera plugged into the Game Boy Advance Slot.

Face Training is the first game announced to use the camera, and it teaches players to exercise their facial muscles by making different faces. Chris Kohler, of Wired.com, reports that the exercises are supposed to help make prettier faces by making the skin more elastic.

The game and camera will be released in Japan on August 2. No North American release date has been announced yet.
