Pulsing Umbilical Cord iPhone Charger is the stuff of Nightmares


As smartphones become ever more part of everyday life, it’s become routine to carry a phone charger at all times. But this charging cable might get more than a few strange looks in the office!  Modeled after a human umbilical cord, this Grow Cable keeps you connected in a way you haven’t been since the day of your birth. Japanese Artist Iizawa Mio has the bizarre creation for sale on on Etsy for $5,751.97.

The artist says the cable, which squirms and pulses while your phone charges, is meant to represent people’s dependence on their iPhones, just as a growing baby depends on its mother.
