Remember that scene in Taxi Driver (1976), when psychopathic Robert DeNiro’s Travis Bickle practices tough-talking in the mirror with the classically confrontational line, “You talkin’ to me?!” Well guess what? Close to 40 years later, he’s got a response. On an iPhone. Oh, and it’s in Japanese. Performance artist Showta Mori’ s retractable quick-draw iPhone, uh.. thingy … is not just inspired. It’s hilarious.

For those of you who read japanese, we salute you.

Morishowta’s inpiration. Robert DeNiro as Travis Bickle.
iPhone Unit 2
Here’s video of Morishowta perfecting his invention.
He's got an iPad version too.
It’s not quite as elegant, however.
And you can cop it.
Mori’s also apparently one enterprising sonuvagun . For about $82 you can get one for yourself on Etsy. .
