Handy tablet thumb stylus, pointy stick-on teeth and other gadgets and products that look like body parts help Japanese have a convenient and happy daily life.
All thumbs not the same
A thumb-shaped slip-on stylus extender that provides more thumb and makes it easier for small hands to navigate the new big-screen smartphones and other devices is just the latest body part-inspired product made in Japan.
The prosthetic Yubi Nobiru thumb stylus is made by novelty goods maker Sanko and sells for JPY 1480. The finger debuted in May this year but has attracted attention now due to the debut of Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus which has a 5.5-inch screen.
Smartphone case breasts soft and squeezable
A phone case for the iPhone 5s which features a female manga image and her embossed breasts lets fans have a squeeze when they use their phones. One line of cases features a manga "maid", a "sister", a "childhood friend", and an "older next door neighbor." Other cases feature anime characters. The iPhone 5s bust case costs between JPY 1200 ~ JPY 3200.
Mousepad has bulging bosom hand wrest
Computer mousepads with 3D wrist wrests shaped like breasts, buttocks, and the inner thighs or the crotches of hentai characters are also available in Japan. Many of the weighty busts are attached to mousepad photos of popular gravure idols or anime and manga characters. A mousepad with boobs and pictures of some members of the popular girl group AKB48 sells for JPY 2400.
Vampire teeth desirable
Imperfect teeth are common in Japan and the so-called "Yaeba Look" (snaggletooth) on women is considered to be attractive and cute by some people. Women in Japan who have perfect teeth can have a dental procedure to obtain the pointy yaeba tooth appearance. A less expensive method of getting cute teeth is to buy a DIY kit that contains mold powder and a pair of "vampire teeth." The user makes a mold of the real tooth, then sets the fake tooth into the mold, trims the dry assembly, and slips the fake tooth over the real tooth in the mouth. The Magical Tooth yaeba-make kit costs about JPY 2500.
Rest head in lady’s lap
The Hizamakura Lap Pillow is a foam pillow that looks like the legs of a kneeling woman. The pillow’s waist and hips is attired in a miniskirt. The pillow is made by Trane Corp. and debuted in the early 2000s. The legs of the original Hizamakura had a smooth skin-like texture. The foam legs of the new version are covered in a softer material, and the pillow is available in small and large size laps. The miniskirt model costs about JPY 9000. Trane also sells a leggy lap pillow wearing a "sexy china dress" slit skirt for JPY 12800.
Japanese artist Megumi Igarishi has posted data that can be used with a 3D printer to create a likeness of her genitals. The artist specializes in "vagina art" and is seeking support for her "mold pussy" full-size boat project.
Silicone breasts on full size body
It seems an entire polyurethane and plastic female body could be assembled from consumer goods sold at retail outlets in Japan.
But if a DIY female is too troublesome, a ready made sex toy "Dutch Wife" may be satisfactory. Oriental Industry makes realistic, life-size female dolls from high-quality silicone, which feature lifelike skin and realistic eyes, and options for breast-size, facial expression, hand pose, hair styles and "under hair" preferences. Fully loaded, the dolls can cost up to JPY 600,000. (sex doll photos)
