Is that an iPhone, or is it a…cockroach?
In Japan, a well known accessory retailer, Hamee, has the latest and greatest in weird. A huge, and creepy, iPhone 5/5s case shaped like a cockroach.
This thing is a giant brown lump of rubbery looking ick shaped like your most loathsome pest, the roach. There is no need to wonder if it actually protects your iPhone, something this bug big has to serve some purpose.
However, it won’t be much good short of a gag gift since it doesn’t even have a cut-out for the camera. Thus, this will serve to scare the daylights out of your siblings or best friend (anything less, and you might end the friendship, whereas, best friends will forgive your attempt to induce a heart attack).
This thing is available in Japan for the equivalent of $30. It’s only a matter of time before your favorite specialty shop starts offering them elsewhere.

Apple will patent cockroach. Scary-cats will have to pay license to be scared.

This is what you have to eat to afford an iPhone. Truth is beautiful, sometimes.

Would be a cool case if you could program it to crawl. Or call your iPhone and it would crawl towards you. Although it could look less chocolaty
