Facetime While Eating Ramen

Ramen bowl

Just saw this story on Japan Pulse. It’s a conceptualized product for Japan that lets you dock your iPhone in your ramen bowl.

The bowl was created after one of its designers, Minnie Jan, witnessed a man eating with one hand while browsing through his phone with the other, she told the New York Daily News. “We did it for fun — it’s kind of sarcastic,” the paper quoted her as saying. But we think there might be a market for it in Japan.

I don’t know about you, but with the way I eat raman, I don’t think anyone wants to see that up close :)

    This is funny! A lot of my Japanese friends have been buying smartphones, so I can attest to the fact that many people are addicted to them. It’d be a nightmare to wipe off the rogue ramen splashes that would get on the iPhone screen, though.

    No kidding Lynn :) I’m a messing ramen eater too and I like to keep my screen clean. It would be a nightmare.
