iPad Survives 1,300 Feet Drop

Many are the phones we have lost or broken. Nightclubs have claimed a few, toilets one, and beer is a constant threat. But probably the most frustrating cause of damage is the simple drop on the floor, smashing the screen, or worse, the ever-growing black line of death. Yes, iDevices are notoriously a very sensitive bunch.

But the designers at G-Form appear to have found the answer to protecting our treasured gadgets, in the form of a hugely tough case made from high-end materials that absorb energy and deform on impact with a hard surface.

They demonstrate their durability with this video, showing an iPad in one of their cases being taken out by skydivers, then released at 1,300 feet to fall to the ground. The iPads emerge completely unscathed, even still playing a video.

Other demonstrations show the cases being thrown out of a Porsche at 113mph, and having a baseball pitched directly at it.

Impressive as this is though, you just know that as soon as you unzip that case, someone will fall over and drop a pint on it, and then it's game over...
