Nightmarish Phone Cases

Apparently, the Japanese have a "thing" for isopods, the horrifying, giant cockroach-like sea creatures that we dare you to Google. And ever since one of the country's most beloved—lovingly known as "No. 1"—staged an epic hunger strike for five years and died, their admiration has grown. So much so that they've made an enormous, nightmare-inducing iPhone case in its likeness.

The not-at-all ostentatious mobile sheath comes in both silver and gold versions, though even the glimmer of faux precious metals can't detract from how little you'll want to get this thing near your face.

Joe McGauley is a senior editor at Supercompressor. He has a normal phone case and plans to keep it that way.
