Introducing The iPhone Case That You Can Eat
Just when you thought you’ve seen everything… think again. You can now eat your iPhone case. Great holiday gift? Hmmmmm, not so much. Great gag gift? Probably so. But would you spend $81 on a gag gift? Also, the most important question of all; will it protect your iPhone? Maybe this will answer your question.
The warning label that it comes with reads: “Please be aware that due to its delicate nature, this case may become broken in the delivery or dispatch process,” according to Japan Trend Shop, a site selling the case in the U.S.
Made from brown rice and salt, the Survival Senbei Rice Cracker iPhone 5 Case “is literally part food, part phone case … and great in an emergency when you are desperate for a snack.”
Are these people serious?
The site describes the cover, which is handmade and takes a month to deliver, as a tongue-in-cheek commentary on Japanese obsessions with food and consumer technology.
So, funny joke … but would anybody actually pay for one?
Apparently so. As of Thursday, the site listed the cases as being sold out.
