Ramen Phone & Tablet Stand

Normally my concern is making it through a bowl of ramen without dropping my phone into it. Slurp, slurp, swipe, slurp, slurp, swipe, slurp, slurp, PLOP! ... Sonofa soba noodle! However, if I were to own OtakuMode's ramen bowl smartphone and tablet dock my concern would definitely shift to coming home drunk and trying to gnaw off its perfectly soft-boiled egg and delectable hunks of glistening pork. They look so real! And Boomtown Noodle closes at midnight!

Like a storefront sample, this one-dish Tokyo meal is made of vinyl chloride. But amongst the temptingly real-looking soup, chuka soba, BBQ pork slices, egg, spinach, and bamboo shoots also sits a permanent rectangular depression large enough to hold some of your favorite devices.

Unfortunately, the bowl's protruding protein and vegetables block enough of an inserted smartphone's screen that it will probably serve more as a quirky Japanese conversation piece than a functional stand.
