10kg dumbbell casing from Softbank

Feel your smartphone is too light? This iPhone X case might be just what you need. 

Japanese phone accessory store, Softbank Selection, is selling the 10kg Ultra Super Macho Case for iPhone X, which as the name suggests is a phone case attached to a 10kg dumbbell. 

The name appears to be a joke on several levels, as it is meant for the iPhone X (or 10), weighs 10kg, and is for Softbank Selection's 10th anniversary. 

According to the product page, the phone case is made with their INVOL Air Shock protective casing and mounted on the dumbbell at a 25º angle for optimal video watching. 

This way, users will be able to get a workout by flexing the phone towards them. 

The site also suggested alternate uses for the case, including a paper weight, door stop or to hammer nails. 

The dumbbell itself is made of iron, polycarbonate, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and measures 27.96cm x 13.08cm x 12.47cm.

Like all things Apple related, this casing isn't cheap, selling for 10,800 yen (RM386.70).
