What The…?!? This Weird Japanese iPhone Case Looks Like A Child’s Severed Hand! [Gallery]



We’ve seen a lot of iPhone accessories here at Cult of Mac, but it’s rare that one leaves us absolutely speechless. Yet when I consider the Hand iPhone Case by Rakuten, my eyes bulge a little, my mouth goes dry, my tongue seems to swell and all I can do is mouth the consonants “W….T…..F……” to myself.

As you can see, the Hand iPhone Case is a disembodied hand… lopped off with an axe, cloned from latex and grafted onto the back of your iPhone, like a human ear growing on the back of a mouse. And hey, if that’s not utterly weird and creepy enough for you? You can pick up a version that pastes a child’s severed hand on the back of your iPhone instead of an adult’s, no additional charge!

Meanwhile, this guy seems as if he’s using that fake lady hand for more than just holding his iPhone, if you catch our drift.

Here’s a couple more images, showing the product in more detail and some suggested usage scenarios:

If you want one, the Hand iPhone Case will cost you around $69 dollars, which probably seems expensive when you could just go down to the local playground and chop off some small child’s hand yourself for free, but think of all the savings in legal fees.

“Thanks” to CoM reader David for spotting this one!
