iPhone 5 Rumor Fatigue?  Here, Hold My Hand
[ Social Media]

I’ve got to hand it to the Japanese. WTF, guys?

In what might be the strangest way to house your beloved Apple smartphone, they have come up with this: A human hand case. It’s a perfect way to house your now-unbearably-boring 3GS or 4 while you are waiting patiently for the iPhone 5 to drop.

Not only can you protect your iPhone from drops and scratches, but you can do it while protecting yourself from loneliness. The life-like hand cases come in two types – a woman’s hand and a child’s hand.

Here at WebProNews we are regrettably bereft of Japanese speakers. So I translated the original site to English using Google translate. The results are interesting.

From what I can gather, the fake hand might feel a bit rubbery. The site says “Is the elastic material, not so much soft hands, please understand.” It also says “please avoid surprises and to how weak of heart or the elderly.” Conclusion: It may freak out your grandmother.

It looks like the case will run you 4.762 yen. With current conversion rates, that’s about 60 bucks.

What would be the benefits of such an odd and cumbersome iPhone case, you ask? First, there’s the obvious plus of always holding someone’s something’s hand as you chat away. Life can get lonely, and it might be nice to always have a helping hand.

Second, you can flip your phone face down and the hand now becomes a convenient holder for pens, pencils, envelopes – you name it. Third, impromptu thumb wars. And finally, as the site recommends, palm readings.

Isn’t this wonderfully bizarre thing a welcome break from all the iPhone 5 rumors?

    It’s a novelty item offered by a small no-name company (not “the Japanese”). You’ll probably never see one in actual use, but it’ll draw hits to the seller’s site, and maybe even rack up a few orders as gag gifts. (Humans are indeed wacky creatures, though sometimes with a bit of method to that madness.)

    Let readers know how you put your phone hand to use once it arrives. : )

    “People aren’t hearing all the music. Artists and producers work hard in the studio perfecting their sound. But people can’t really hear it with normal headphones. Most headphones can’t handle the bass, the detail, the dynamics. Bottom line, the music doesn’t move you. With Beats, people are going to hear what the artists hear, and listen to the music the way they should: the way I do.”- Dr. Dre
