Surrealist iPhone Case Copies Catalan Crustacean

I’m not sure what I like best about this fantastic lobster-shaped iPhone case. It could be that it puts protects your handset by putting it on the back of a creepy crawly crustacean. Or it could be that it is made by the improbably-named Noddy Boffin.

Or, most likely, it could be the name itself, which hearkens back to the days when just tossing a lobster into the mix was enough to earn the coveted “surreal” tag: “Lobster Mobile Telephone Case.” [emphasis added]

Inspired by Dalí’s famous sculpture, the case is typically useless, with the following “features”: “camera incapability, ergonomically awkward, too big for your pocket or handbag and most importantly, it’s ability to cause its users embarrassment.”

I want one, but I can’t have one: the folks at Noddy Boffin have no plans to make it. Then again, it’s a great DIY project, and getting your hands on a lobster shell is not only easy but also comes with a free and delicious dinner.
