Strange Product of The Day: Edible iPhone Case

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.

Goriki Ayame Recieves the “E-Line Beautiful Award”

Didn’t know an “E-Line Beautiful Award” existed? Neither did we. Apparently this award has existed in Japan since 1990. Chosen by the Japan Association of Adult Orthodontics, this award is for whomever has the most beautiful facial profile due to the perfect alignment of the teeth.  The facial structure and shape is judged from bridge of one’s nose to their chin. This award has been given to other celebrities such as various celebrities such as Yonekura Ryoko (2002), Ueto Aya (2004), Yuka (2007), and Takei Emi (2012).

This year, actress and singer Goriki Ayame was given the E-Line Beautiful Award and she attended the ceremony  with a smile very fitting for her award. She expressed, “I cut my hair for a drama role (around 3 years ago), which was the first time I ever got myself a short hairdo. I was very scared prior to the change, but now I’m glad I’ve done it. Since then, people have been telling me that I have a beautiful profile. It gave me a lot of self-confidence.”

Looking to have a profile as beautiful as Goriki Ayame? Delighting all the dentists, the actress revealed that her secret is to brush her teeth after every meal.
