Anti-Loneliness Ramen Bowl Is Part-Noodle Container, Part-iPhone Stand, Totally Depressing

Here, via CNET's Amanda Kooser, is what is likely the most depressing --and, let's face it, most useful! -- iPhone accessory you'll see all week. It's a Ramen bowl with a holder for your iPhone, poetically dubbed the Anti-loneliness ramen bowl, designed so that you can look at the screen while you eat alone at a table for one.

Tissues to wipe away your tears of sadness not included. MisoSoupDesign, the Taiwanese company behind the anti-loneliness ramen bowl, have not yet announced pricing or availability; at this point, the bowl appears to be a design concept rather than an actual product. In other words, you're going to have to master holding your fork with one hand and your iPhone with the other for a little while longer.
