Got an iPhone 4 or 4S? You need one of these cases

SushiiPhoneCase2I look at the Japanese design blog Spoon & Tamago from time to time. This morning it featured these astonishingly weird iPhone 4 cases. In Tokyo there's an entire neighborhood devoted to making and selling faux plastic "food samples" of sushi and other foodstuffs, even café au lait.

Now someone's had the moxie to apply some of that faux food to an iPhone case. Per the blog, some of the designs, such as unagi and matsutake are based on seasonal food and released in the appropriate month. Sure, wearing one of these iPhone cases is bulkier than going naked. (The food is three-dimensional.) But think of it more as an accessory for your phone to be trotted out on KabayakiiPhoneCase special occasions. They're hilarious, really.

Available from the site Strapya, which is only in Japanese. It looks like the price is 3990 yen, which is about $51. Shipping, I couldn't tell. But it can't weigh all that much. Anybody who covets one of these iPhone cases will have to get someone who speaks Japanese to translate.
