My wife and I are big fans of the Japanese culture as we watch anime on a nightly basis, listen to Japanese music and decorate our home with a number of Japanese goods. We also make our way to a Japanese marketplace In Edgewater, NJ called Mitsuwa Marketplace that has a food court inside of it that has a number of tasty dishes. One dish I always see people eating around me is a bowl of ramen, although I also see eating the tasty dish and using your cell phone could be disastrous if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The “anti-loneliness ramen bowl” is a prototype from designers Daisuke Nagatomo and Jan Minnie that makes it completely possible for ramen bowl eaters to enjoy their dish while also keeping their eyes on their smartphone so they can stay in constant communication with whoever they want. The bowl also doubles as a speaker amplifier, that is, once you find yourself at the bottom of your bowl of ramen.

The anti-loneliness ramen bowl is only a prototype, but we’re sure many of your ramen bowl eaters will think this is a fantastic idea that you need in your life. I don’t eat ramen, but I would totally want this for my morning milk & cereal.
