While most people want to keep their devices on the sleek and small side of the spectrum, the Rhubarb Gusokumushi iPhone Case is neither of those qualities. Instead, it is big, clunky and, more importantly, creepy. Shaped after the Toba Aquarium creature, which died earlier this year, the smartphone accessory is unlike anything currently on the market.

Available in Japan, the Rhubarb Gusokumushi iPhone Case is shaped like an isopod (or arthropod, a distinction even the folks at Oh Gizmo are having a hard time figuring out). The claws underneath is hard rounded shell clutches the iPhone to its underbelly, providing a safe and secure place for it to rest. A limited edition product, the Rhubarb Gusokumushi iPhone Case comes in gold and silver.
