the next time when someone comes around and ask to lend a hand, he’s probably asking if he can borrow your iPhone. i am referring to this creepy case from Dokkiri, the same folks who brought to you the Japanese Beetle case. i have no idea why would someone want to produce a case with such a life-like rubber hand stuck to its back. perhaps, it is for some shock-factor? or there are those who feel the need to hold someone’s hand when making a call? regardless, it looks pretty awkward to hold. anyway, despite its creepiness, this might just be another mobile conversational piece. thankfully, Dokkiri decided not throw in some fake blood at the wrist cut off area.
