A white slender cable that runs between your iPhone and the wall outlet is nothing short of mundane. That’s how it is, but if you really, really want to stand out and make a statement, the this iPhone Umbilical Cord Charging Cable is the cable you want. Period. Artistically created by Japanese artist/Etsy seller, iimio, this disturbingly lifelike umbilical cord serves as a disturbing alternative to your regular white cable. Handcrafted from silicone, it looks so realistic that the only gave away that it isn’t a real thing is the lack of moisture as a real umbilical cord. Or maybe it does? But being realistic is not it. Here’s the official description which you want to read:
“The iPhone cable shaped as an umbilical cord, which keeps moving while it’s charging. Now people bring their iPhone all the time in their lives. I designed the looking of this cable as an umbilical cord, which mother feeds energy to her baby. It moves as if it’s trying to introduce iPhone into, just like to express an irony to people’s dependance on iPhone.”
So, yup. It twitches too… as if it is giving birth to an iPhone. Disturbing indeed. This is perhaps the most morbidly intriguing gadget accessory we have seen to date. Not even the severed finger USB come gross to its morbidness. Anyways, if you want, you can actually buy this artistically represented piece of iPhone accessory from iimio, but be warned, the price will shock you. And how much are we talking about? Oh, nothing much, it is only asking for a whopping 600,000 Yen, or accordingly to Etsy, about US$5,517. Oh, wow. Take a look of it in action in the video below.
