Why

Someone Glued a Handle to an iPhone Case So You Don’t Have to Lift Your Arm as High Anymore

It's called a FONHANDLE, soooo, bye.

The human race has taken time off from ending hunger and achieving world peace to create a new invention that helps you hold your hand at a slightly lower altitude when making a phone call.

Dubbed the Fonhandle, this truly revolutionary instrument costs about $13. It was created by some Israelis who clearly didn’t have any bigger fish to fry that day.

It comes in black, white, clear, pink, green and brown, the Daily Mail asserts, so it solves the dual problems of having to hold your phone to your ear and ensuring your case matches your outfit. The founders are looking to raise $22,000 in the next 43 days on Kickstarter. Incredibly, they’ve already gathered about $2,000.

Here is something the Fonhandle’s inventor, Yonatan Assouline, said:

“Humans have used this method throughout history to turn rock, metal and bone into axes and hammers, then later on – simple lenses into magnifying glasses, and then – rubber nets into fly swatters.

“Now it is time to do the same with the most useful object of all – the smartphone.”

It also makes your phone look like a spatula.
