This case is a bit of a odd product, but might appeal to iPhone owners looking for something a little more unique. The $22 Mug is a rubber case that adds a coffee mug-esque handle to the back of the iPhone. The most useful feature of the case is the ability to use the handle as a built-in stand, as shown in the video below.

Strangely, the Mug completely blocks the rear camera, but offers full access to all the other ports. The case, from South Korea, is available in white, pink, green, yellow, blue, and purple.

But nothing. FAIL. That's all anyone needed to know.
Another useless product to consume
I've actually been looking for something like this for a few months. I give interactive presentations to medical students in large lecture halls and run the audience response software from my iPhone while the presentation runs on my MacBook.

I like to get out from behind the podium and wander around. I've been wanting an iPhone case with some sort of handle to give me a little more security while walking about, talking with my hands, but is easy to use with the finger of the opposite hand as the software has specific target buttons to hit that (for me anyhow) requires more than just thumb control. There are several iPad cases with handles or slots in which to slide a hand, but not much for the iPhone that I've seen.

This isn't precisely what I've been looking for, but I might go ahead and get one. After the lecture I can use it as a stand back in my office. Amazing how internet commenters have to rush to be "first" posters and point out "fails" just because of lack of imagination or limited needs.

I really, REALLY wish people would stop using the word "fail" this way. It's unintelligent and annoying.

That said the case is cute in concept but the practical use of the case as a stand is the only benefit. They could have better designed a case with that singular use in mind rather than a one second "oh it's not really a mug, cute" idea.
