Taiwanese ramen bowl has iPhone dock

TAIPEI, Taiwan, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- A Taiwanese company has dubbed its latest product, a ramen noodles bowl with an iPhone dock, the "anti-loneliness bowl."

MisoSoupDesign partners Minnie Jan and Daisuke Nagatomo, who attended Columbia University together, said they were inspired to create the "anti-loneliness bowl" when they spotted a man eating alone while clutching his phone, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

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

"We did it for fun -- it's kind of sarcastic," she said of the bowl's creation. "We're not trying to promote everyone looking at their screens all the time."
