Do Not Want: An iPhone Cover That Holds Your Hand

The Japanese are known for their innovations in technology and design, but this is one instance where the two have gone awfully awry. These iPhone cases come with a very realistic hand attached to the back that you can—according to the ad—use to hold your own hand while speaking on the phone, act as a candleholder, or even marry. The thing comes in two sizes (Nami—a female adult, and Yamato—a child) to freak people out in two ways as the website reads after an impeccable Google Translate: "Come into view once you get used cute! But sometimes scary! !" Blergh. Sometimes scary, indeed. (Rakuten)
