These wacky iPhone cases from Japan’s iMeshi are completely impractical. Not only do they not really do much to protect your precious glass iPhone, they make them look like something you could eat, but you can’t.
According to the product description, these phone cases are based on “some of the most popular Japanese food.” The bento rice and yaki soba seem like obvious choices, but at first I couldn’t figure out what that crumbly one was supposed to be -I thought it was a McDonald’s hash brown. In fact, it’s Tonkatsu – a Japanese fried pork cutlet. And I didn’t think bacon and eggs was traditional Japanese fare, but what to do I know?
Well, if you want to find out for yourself how realistic the inedible foods are, head on over to Strapya World, where you can get your hands on the iMeshi Food cases for the iPhone 3G(S) and iPhone 4 for $43.20 (USD) each. For that price, I’m pretty sure you could buy yourself a really nice meal.
