ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Dokkiri Hand Case for iPhone 4 [Strapya World via Dangerous Minds]
Is the lotion included?
Irksome, I like you.
*Some hand may vary in size and shape since each hand is made individually.
*There is no hole for the camera. Please remove the case when taking pictures.
Deal-breaker for me :(
Makes me wish I had an iPhone.
What? No camera-hole? It clearly shows one in the picture. I’m confused.
Welcome to the phonecanny valley, folks…
this is one of those “what that…I don’t even…” -type products, isn’t it.
Now, if the severed hand had still been clutching the phone, you could have made up a very credible backstory.
Credible backstory: “This is what happens when you cut me off on my motorcycle as you exit the Piggly Wiggly while calling your bff to tell her that you just bought the 5-gallon tub of Chunky Monkey and are on your way home to eat it while watching the Oxygen channel before you cry yourself to sleep AGAIN.”
There’s a Palm OS joke to be made here, but I just can’t think of one.
Well, sexting just got awkward.
This is really stretching the definition of “accessory”…
I don’t get it.
Paedophile wanking aid?
Ah! Japanese. Now I understand. Common appliance used for uncommon masturbatory fantasies. Sheesh.
My main complaint upon purchasing my iphone was that it didn’t come with a severed hand on the back. Solved!
How is this a “case”?
At the price of $64.20 USD, you’d need to be wealthy — or REALLY into infant hands — to buy this one!
Isn’t there a CSI episode with a fake hand taken from a life cast that’s used to incriminate someone else/disguise a murder?
It’s a Murderers Friend?
Perhaps this is the potential beginnings of a new meme. Attach an impractical object to an iPhone and call it a case. Affix it to a salmon and you have the Salmon iPhone! Glue it to a sponge and you have the iPhone safety cushion! And so on and so forth.
You might be on to something there. Is there a vibrate function on an iPhone? Glue a rubber Penis to an iPhone…
Yes, I’ve heard that there is a vibrate app that, well does exactly that for as long as you want. Now here is the hand attachment just so you can stop being subtle about it.
Perhaps it’s a commentary on child labor in the third world? You could tell people that a child lost his hand in the iPhone case making machine.
I Can Haz Hand?
No end of “Is that my phone? Could you hand it to me?” laughs
If it were a black hand making the BLACK POWER fist, maaaaybe. Otherwise, this is creepy.
The same day this was posted, I saw this on Deal Extreme:
“It looks like a normal mini hand but it is not”
No end of fun with that one. “Hey, check out this mini-hand!”
The most delightful part of the abnormal mini-hand is the comment by someone who had to whip out a soldering iron to repair the thing when it arrived, and called that “understandable” :P
“dokkiri”:”Recently popularized in the west by shows such as Punk’d, these hidden-camera surprise pranks have been very common on Japanese television since the 90’s. Traps such as pitfalls, falling objects, and seductive idols are often used.”
I still don’t get it :)
