5 Crazy Phone Cases for your Precious Gadget

Admit it, nowadays it's near impossible to meet someone without a cell phone. It's become our main method of communication apart from email and computers. For some, it's even become a sort of extended organ where they can't function in their daily lives or perform activities knowing that their gadgets aren't nearby.

Unlike any organ though, cell phones and its many incarnations can be jazzed up to suit the personality. There are the awesome ones (hello, The Dairy!) and then, there are the others...

Get ready to meet some of the weirdest and wackiest phone cases man has ever made... so far.


1. Hungry?

Since we have the words "weirdest" and "wackiest" on here, you can bet there's going to be an entry from Japan. There are three of them, in fact.

Yum, isn't it? This is the Unagi phone case. Modeled after a Japanese dish consisting of a slice of freshwater eel, barbecued to perfection lying on a bed of tasty rice.


This sidewalk treat is made up of sticky rice shaped in a ball. Three or four are skewered and then served. Man, just looking at this case makes me hungry.


Toro means filleted fish while Ebi is fried prawn and yes, these two on top of your phone case might look weird but that's the point! It looks insanely tasty though. You can almost sink your teeth onto that.


2. Brick Phone

Welcome back to the 80s and early 90s, my friend. A time when cell phones can substitute as your first line of defense. If you're nostalgic for such times, say hello to the Brick Phone. For 20 bucks, you can get protection for your phone and yourself. Good deal, right?

3. Ear Phone

This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "lend me your ear."

4. The iPhone Notebook

For bookworms everywhere, this notebook will easily protect and cuddle up your precious gadget. Pop it into the customized insert, close it and you have a book. You can even write on it 176 pages!


5. The Cardboard iPhone Case

If you need to save up and don't mind the odd looks, this cardboard style phone case might just be the thing you need. Case-mate is offering this case for about a dollar. Insert your phone and you got yourself a handy phone case. If you can't spare a dollar, then just download the template and make one yourself.

Bonus: Hand iPhone Case

I like to think of this as a homage to "Thing" from Adams Family. Not really sure how you can fit your phone into your pocket after this but it's definitely a conversation starter for sure.
