Behold, Korea's ingenuity.
What the person is holding is a popular sausage snack in Korea. In order to use iPhone during winter, one needs to take off one's gloves to make sure the touch screen works. But some people in Korea discovered that the sausage actually works as a touchpad pen. According to an experiment conducted by a shopping website, other conductors such as tangerines, onions and batteries also worked with iPhone touch screen, but concluded that the sausage snack was the winner in the categories of accuracy, portability and multi-purpose use (as a snack.) The particular sausage snack featured in the picture enjoyed a 40 percent increase in sales in the last two months.
