The Lobser Mobile Phone Case is a Modern Dali Adaptation

You may surprised at the imagination of the Lobser Mobile Phone Case's designer and wonder how he came up with such a seemingly arbitrary, unusual and ineffectual form. If you don't recognize the reference it makes then perhaps it delivers a shock much like that that the original influenced in 1938, Salvador Dali's Lobster Telephone.

This here is a contemporary version, swapping the crustacean shell receiver for an all-encompassing iPhone case. The user has access to the touchscreen with this model but the rear camera is rendered unusable, the smartphone is no longer portable and the gadget instantly becomes difficult to handle. Noddy Boffin's Lobser Mobile Phone Case is an iconic, seemingly unique and terribly frustrating electronics accessory. This is precisely the point of it and makes the item a source of discussion and amusement.
