korean leese design has developed the ‘earphone winder’, an iPhone 5 case in the shape of whale that spouts like a fountain.users can wind their cable on the tail when not in use, or use the built in compartment for USB storage. the ergonomic shape provides a comfortable and stable grip, and allows user to hang the device by its flexible fin. when needed, the case also acts as a hands-free container for watching content online or listening to music wirelessly.
