This might be the saddest gadget you've ever seen.

The MisoSoupDesign 'Anti Loneliness Ramen Bowl' is a soup dish with a built-in iPhone dock.

The bowl is made with a specially shaped hole for your mobile device, allowing you to read or watch emails as you eat alone, weeping into your noodles.

Designed by Daisuke Nagatomo and Jan Minnie, it's pitched at people who regularly eat on their own and need entertaining.

It also doubles as an amplifying speaker, apparently.

The bowl is currently in a pre-order phase, and you can put your name down at Facebook now.

Or you can just, you know, call a friend?
