The recent unveiling of the new iPhone 5 came with a lot of prophesizing, frantic pre-orders, and basically a whole lot of nerdery. Along with a thinner, longer look, the new iPhone has a redesigned adapter port, meaning all existing iPod accessories will require a $30 converter (Damn you, Apple!). If, like me, you plan on sticking with the good ol’ iPhone 4 for the time being, you can still step up your game with these ridiculous – and strangely appealing – iPhone accessories.
The Cassette To iPod Converter
Dust off your old cassette tapes of Janet Jackson, Jon Secada and Arrested Development, because those little babies have been given a new life. Forget buying digital recordings of your favorite old tracks on iTunes – with this handy device you can convert audio tape cassettes into MP3 files and store them directly onto an iPhone. It will even work for all those karaoke sessions you recorded in your bedroom alone on a Friday Tuesday night in high school (for class, of course).

SeV Travel Boxers
For the man who has nothing to hide…but wants to, anyway. Whether you’re traveling in pickpocket territory or just want to keep your nosy girlfriend from snooping through your text messages, these boxers will keep your phone safe near the rest of the family jewels thanks to a built-in pocket perfectly designed to hold an iPhone. May pose some complications when receiving a call, particularly when set to vibrate.

And for the ladies! Make more room for your lip gloss and keys in your clutch by stashing your iPhone right in your bra! The JoeyBra’s unique design “will hold most cellphones, ID, key, and other small items regardless of bust size.” Brings new meaning to the term “stuffing your bra.”

Hand iPhone Case

Err…for the lonely? We could all use another hand, so why not just stick a fake one on the backside of your phone? Now you can caress a plastic palm while chatting with your long distance boyfriend or use it to hold other miscellaneous items on your desk, as so beautifully demonstrated by the image on the website.
Before you get behind the wheel after a few drinks at happy hour, pop this bad boy into your phone and check out whether you’re legally within the limit. It will set you back $99 to score one of your own, but that’s well worth avoiding a DUI, thousands of dollars in fees and insurance rate hikes, and putting yourself and others at risk.
