10 Japanese mobile gadgets and accessories that will blow your mind

10 Japanese mobile gadgets and accessories that will blow your mind
We've had our bouts with the comical parts of Japanese smartphone culture a couple of times before, where we mostly dealt with its penchant for outlandish iPhone cases. This time, we're cruising for something even crazier. In Japan, you can buy the kinds of smartphone gadgets and accessories that boggle the mind! A robotic touchscreen cleaner? Check. Thumb extender for large phablet screens? Betcha! A cushion for your tablet's precious bottom? Mhm. We have that, and several more pieces of mobile-related Japanese arts and crafts that walk the blurry lines between awkward, weird, and awesome. 

If you don't believe you can actually buy this stuff, we've included links so you can see with your very eyes that these things do exist and are up for sell to anyone interested. It's not like we're joking around or something! Now, check out the 10 amazing creations of Japanese visionaries below. Which one's your favorite? Over here, we still can't get enough of the giant isopod!
