iPhones look good enough to eat

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Before you ask, this is not an iPhone being used to fry a full English. It is in fact one of the fugliest mobile cases I've ever seen.

One wacky Japanese company has taken it upon themselves to create iPhone cases that look like portions of food.

The realistic-looking slip-ons - or iMeshi as they're formally known - come in a variety of styles, from this bacon and eggs one, to spag boll and even sushi. While I couldn't think of anything worse to cover my phone, apparently the cuisine cases are all the rage in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Sometimes the hole for the camera lens is partially blocked or non-existent, but you'd look a right plonker holding up a plate of noodles at your desired target anyway.

Phone me a kipper, I'll call back for breakfast

A spokesman from Strapya, the firm behind the designs said: "The company didn't want to compromise the realism of the cases by placing a big lens hole on a beautifully constructed bento or sushi replica iPhone case."

Each case is handmade for the iPhone 4 and will set back punters roughly $50 a pop. They'll be despatched mid-august. Feeling peckish yet? ®
