There are some bizarre inventions in the world and thanks to the way that we are constantly inundated with new information and bizarre ideas due to our increasing dependence on technology, it is not surprising that someone would develop an edible iPhone case. Given that someone would make a phone protector that you could also ingest, so what’s next? An edible iPhone? If you are looking to protect your phone with a tasty treat then look no further! The Japanese have designed a delicious and crunchy case that will fit perfectly to your iPhone. The product is made ironically as a commentary on consumption and technology. As capitalism would have it, these jokers are making bank off of their humorous product. The case, which is made out of brown rice and salt costs $81 and is handmade. The product then takes over one month to deliver. The best part is the disclaimer made by Japan Trend Shop, a site that is selling the case in the U.S. The company says, ”Please be aware that due to its delicate nature, this case may become broken in the delivery or dispatch process.” So after one month of waiting for your rice-cake phone cover, it may end up too broken to cover your phone! Gimmicky items are so overrated. Amazingly enough, the site sold out of the phone cases, showing that a lot of people are either in on the commentary that the product is making on popular culture, or we’re all as weird as they think we are. It could also be possible that they may have just missed the mark and threw hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of dollars at this company for something that they don’t understand conceptually. Personally, none of us plan on buying the edible iPhone cover, but we do find it interesting enough to blog about.
