Tumor phone / Tumor phone

Tumor phone

Tumor Phone is a mobile phone case. During the usage of a mobile phone, the bubbles on the case swell and expand as the temperature of the phone goes up, due to Thermal Expansion Theory. This results in a tumor-looking case that is difficult and even disgusting for the user to hold.
The Tumor Phone case, in the hopes of decreasing mobile phone usage, acts as a reminder to its users of the connection between health and technology.
