From celebrity chef apps to video cooking tutorials to mapping the whereabouts of L.A. food trucks, it's no secret that the iPhone pretty much doubles as a mobile kitchen. But now, thanks to Japanese cell phone accessory-maker Strapya, your iPhone can take on a freakishly-realistic resemblance to the food you actually prepare in your kitchen too. How? Enter iMeshi Japanese Food iPhone covers, which transform your slim, pocket-sized iPhone into replicas of a bento box, sunny side-up eggs and bacon, Tonkatsu (fried pork cutlet) and Yakisoba noodles.
According to Strapya's website, the covers — priced at $43.20/each — are available for both iPhone 3 and 4 models and will be “dispatched towards the middle of September.” If for some reason the food iPhones covers don't satiate your food-meets-tech appetite, you can always add a deep-fried “chikin,” tempura shrimp or pineapple crepe cell phone strap to your order. Chopsticks not included.
