For many people, earphones are about carving out just a little solitude as much as they are listening to music. Pop in a pair, and merely the pushiest of people will attempt to engage you in a dialogue, meaning you’re mostly left alone in a bubble of simply you and your favourite tunes.
Available from smartphone accessory maker Ganso Case, there’s actually a bit of backstory behind the feline add-ons. Over two years past, Twitter user Nekomura Otako tweeted a sketch of a chubby little kitty attached to your smartphone out. But while Nekomura Otako is handy with a pencil, he did’t have the abilities or resources to create a line of physical bodies, so he only said, “Somebody, please make these!”
This is the arrival of the character I Cat, and it has turned into the Nyapita line of earphone clips.
A total of five variations can be found, all with exactly the same body but different colorings. Clockwise in the top left, there’s Saba Shiro, Chatora, Shamu, Mike, and Chatora Shiro.
Not only are they cute in photos, they additionally adorable in stop-motion video -style chiptunes.
