Your mobile needs some modest underpants
Toymaker, Bandai, has unleashed a wondrous thing on the world - SMART PANTS™. What are they? They're underpants for your mobile phone. And of course, they're an instant hit!
Hisashi Moriuchi came up with the idea, saying: "I was asked by my boss to come out with something amusing to sell in capsule vending machines. So I thought it would be funny to dress up my iPhone with underwear."
"The purpose of the smart pants is partly to protect the home button of your smart phone from being accidentally pushed. People wear pants to protect their sexual organs, their most sensitive spot. Well, on the Android phones, that's the home button and the same with the iPhone. It just feels right to cover it up nicely."
Moriuchi does add that, rather than functionality, "its major purpose is to be amusing."
If you would like to see the range of underpants you can buy for your phone or, indeed, find out more about them, have a look at kotaku.com where they have more. We're waiting for iPad lingerie.
