Well, this time, that conventional wisdom is completely wrong, because I can say definitively and absolutely … NEVER.
This iPhone case is the silliest thing I have ever seen. (Thanks go out to Carmen for bringing it to my attention!)
It is completely edible. Made of brown rice and salt.

The intention behind the invention is survival. If there is a natural disaster, and your iPhone is encased with this beauty, you can eat it, and therefore.. survive.
You’re probably thinking that this is a joke.
It is not. A Japanese businesswoman is making these in the tradition of a brown rice cracker that is popular among older folks in Japan.
And here’s the kicker … it sells for $81 and, according to the site that sells this edible wonder, it is sold out.
