By and large, cellphone cases have traditionally been designed to withstand drops from moderate heights, say several feet or more – certainly not from outer space. In their latest publicity stunt (a recent one being an iPad test drop), accessories maker G-Form have once again attempted to see if an iPod Touch using their signature XTREME case (designed for the iPhone 5) can survive a 100,000 foot free fall from the stratosphere.
No doubt we’ve all worried about accidentally dropping our iPads whilst using it. But rest assured, it’s a whole lot more resistant to sudden impacts – at least that’s what G-Form wants you to believe. Promoting their Extreme Edge protector for the iPad, G-Form drops the iTablet from 100,000 feet up to see if the device can survive the extreme drop. Surprisingly, the iPad’s still in pretty good shape, and more importantly, it continues to work after the free fall.
