Need A Sturdy Case? Watch This iPad Survive A 1,300 Drop And Live! [Video]



The guys over at G-Form go to extreme lengths to show off the impressive capabilities of their gadget cases, like dropping a 12lb. bowling ball on the iPad, and throwing a perfectly good MacBook Pro off of a balcony.

The iPad becomes their victim again in this latest stunt, which is intended to show off the incredible strength of the company’s Extreme Edge and Extreme Portfolio cases, as they’re dropped from 1,300 feet.

As you can see from the video above, both the G-Form cases and the iPads they’re protecting are perfectly intact after the 1,300-foot drop, which is very impressive indeed. I’ve known the device to shatter in cheaper cases from just waist height, so this really does demonstrate the strength of the G-Form sleeves.

While I’m confident that no iPads were harmed during the making of this video, what concerns me is the possibility that one of the devices might stray off-course and take out a local resident innocently tending to their lawn.
