Weird at CES: iPhone cassette player, zombie case, orangutan

Updated

One constant at CES is an annual exhibition of peculiar items in various parts of the show floor. This morning alone, we’ve seen an iPhone cassette player attachment, another case that transforms a man’s face into a zombie, and a display of iPad holders with a stuffed orangutan. This is merely scratching the surface of what’s scattered around the show.

This iPhone case features the face of an unknown man, who turns into a zombie when you change the viewing angle. A zombie kitten was another option. People love zombies, right?

At this booth, a stuffed orangutan sits up in bed, staring at two tablet holders. The creature is absolutely transfixed. Imagine if actual iPads were placed in those holders.
