This Flask Disguised as an iPhone Isn’t Fooling Anybody

iflask

Guys, there’s tons different between each iPhone model. Tons. Seriously. Side by side, it’s like the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 aren’t even the same brand – the design specs and features and color (!) are just so far off from one another, it’s ridiculous. Which is why the iFlask could never work in the real world. Those Coachella guards would know. They’d knowww.

In other news, can anyone tell this California heat wave is getting to me?

Complete with a collapsible funnel, the iFlask can hold up to 5 ounces of booze in a pretty convincing stainless steel frame. Or at least it will, whenever production finishes. The inventors Ethan and Dan anticipate this happening sometime around late May, but be warned: they probably wrote that little projection up on their “iPhones.”

iFlask: $25 @ goiflask.com

Cashew Chashu: the Japanese Bakery Where the Ramen Is Actually Made Out of Cake

ramencake

It’s kinda like that hyper-realistic asparagus cake we saw last year, except instead of replacing something yucky with something awesome, we’re just replacing something awesome with something even more awesome.

Behold, ladies and gents, the only possible way to improve a steaming hot bowl of miso ramen topped with succulent chashu pork and freshly chopped green onions. Which is, of course, to make it out of cake.

Designed by the Machi no Kumasan bakery in Gunma, Japan, this super-convincing ramen cake goes for about 1,000 yen or $11 USD, according to Rocket News. The “noodles” are made out of chestnut and pumpkin cream, the “broth” is Earl Grey jelly, the “chashu pork” is raspberry jelly and the “green onions” are pistachios.

Granted, the cream noodles look a bit more like udon than ramen to me, but hey it’s dinner made out of dessert. I’m sure we can let it slide.
