Everybody looking for an unique iPhone case. Do you know this one?
Possibly very handy in Japan where a big earthquake like 3.11 can happen and need to survive, or when you climb up mountains and lose your way.
Well this case is something you can actually eat it.
It is made of Senbei or Japanese rice cracker (煎餅). Survival Rice Cracker iPhone 5 case SV3818 ( サバイバルせんべいiPhone5専用ケース SV3818( by the way the pronounciation of 3818"sabaiba" is close to the English sound of survival) ) only available on online of this shop "Lucky Ltd" in Mine city, Yamaguchi, Japan.
Mr. Yoshida, the company preside of this company which manufactures and sells the edible mobile phone case, says he only uses local harvests( Mine rice and salt from Yamaguchi) for this case and would like to promote Yamaguchi prefecure.
It is priced at 3,818JPY, normal price for iPhone case.
A problem ( or possibly charm) is this iPhone case is very easy to break.
From a manufacturer's point of view very difficult to produce only two out of ten produced are suitable for the market. This case gets also soften due to the moisture so it can not be stored therefore only order made.
From the user's point of view, you may lose the case any time possible.
Based on the company's statistics showing the probability of crack/breakage:
When you put the case on your iPhone, 76%
When you put the recharger, 54%
When you drop it, 120%
I have dropped my phone sometimes so I could lose my case 2 or 3 times a day!
This iPhone 5 case is not really for the protection of the phone at all but must taste very nice!
