Because iPhone’s are one of the worlds most popular smartphones, we’ve come across our share of strange iPhone cases. We’ve seen cases covered in fur, cases made to look like a portable phone from the 90’s, and even iPhone cases attached to pepper spray. The possibilities of strange iPhone cases seem endless. Recently, Japan has decided to add onto this list with their latest product- the edible iphone case.
The Survival Senbei Rice Cracker iPhone 5 Cover is handmade by “Mariko” using only brown rice and salt. For $64, you can have a phone cover that doubles as a tasty snack in case of an emergency. The case is rather fragile and they openly state that it will not do a good job of protecting your phone (in fact there is a disclaimer that the case itself may break during its one month delivery period).
Think no one would be interested in a phone cover that doesn’t even protect the phone? Well you’d be surprised. Once the product started a web mail order, nearly 500 were sold instantly. Clearly, people are taken by the humor of this rice cracker case.
Our verdict? We’re gonna go ahead and pass. We could definitely spend that $64 to get multiple phone cases and some rice crackers. Tell us what you think.
