The Comedone-Extracting / Blackhead-Uprooting Microbot (CEBUM) is a miniature robotic thingy that trolls around on your face -- whilst you sleep, say -- extracting comedones and uprooting blackheads, automatically. In the morning it docks in its designated location (wherever THAT is) so that the sebum CEBUM has culled can be harvested for industrial purposes. (See Amazing Nose Oil Resources)

       Diagram needed; how will it minimise skin-damage, infection-risks, etc.?

       It's been thought of before, so this idea needs a little bit of an invention to it. Tell us even half of something clever about how it will detect or excavate, like terrain mapping, cutter resistance or IR cameras and cold spots.   

       Cute acronym, though. [ ]

       Very much magic nanobot technology.

       So where does it dock? Your ears?

       Yes, yes -- many questions. *Diagramming, diagramming...*

       [pertinax], it would probably have some form of protectant that would cover your face (such as a special kind of lotion) to prevent any infection or whatever, but this, like Clinique facial soaps and the Greek saying, must be used in moderation. (I get this horrible image in my head that shows what happens to people who've used it too long)
