Here’s a conversation starter for all you ipod-carrying carnivores out there. It’s a protective case designed – on purpose – to look like raw meat. At least it is upscale and meant to look like Kobe beef, with a high price tag to match (reportedly $88). It falls under trends because we see more and more of this type of accessory – man-made things that are designed to look like the natural environment. We admit this one is a little over the top, but the idea is one we can sink our teeth into. That is, if the meat were cooked.
The ipod case is sold by a Japanese company, “Solid Alliance”:http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ja&u=http://www.solidalliance.com/&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=1&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dsolid%2Balliance%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26hs%3D6co, which tends to the quirky (such as their USB hubs).
