Good times lie ahead for those whose iPhone addiction interferes with their soup-eating habits.
iPhone addicts the world over will rejoice at the news that they may soon be able to get their hands on a soup bowl with a built in iPhone holder.
Those who find the task of parting with their iPhone whilst eating a tad too arduous will be able to slot their smartphone neatly into the back of their soup bowl.
Quite why anyone would feel the need to place their iPhone within splash-back distance of their liquid subsistence is anyone’s guess, although the multi-functional bowl is sure to delight may of the world’s tech addicts.

"He just couldn't let the phone go!" said Minnie Jan, 33, one of the designers of the bowl. "We thought it would be a good idea to help him restore his manners."
