An iPad Is Dropped 1300 Feet And Survives

It seems that losing a couple of iPads is well worth the chance when demonstrating your new extreme protective cases! Well that is clearly, what G Form thought when they decided to test the strength of their cases by taking them on a skydiving trip and dropping them from 1300 feet! Well check out the video to see what happens?

These are the details of the test where both cases were dropped from 1300 feet;

To demonstrate its RPT energy absorbing technology, G-Form goes skydiving with both the Extreme Edge™ and the Extreme Portfolio™ iPad cases and drops both iPads from above 1300 feet AGL after playing movies in free fall. Neither iPad sustains any damage with the movies still playing after ground impact. G-Form’s RPT technology was originally developed to protect athletes from impacts, but is now incorporated into their line of electronic device protection for tablets, laptop computers and other devices.

These are the G Form cases used in the test;

G-Form Extreme Portfolio™ for your iPad or iPad2, will protect your tablet from impact by utilizing RPT™ – Reactive Protection Technology, a composite blend of PORON® XRD™ material and proprietary G-Form materials and technology.

The G-Form Extreme Portfolio is priced at $90 or £65

The G-Form Extreme Sleeve™ offers consistent, repeated impact absorption for dependable performance throughout the life of the product. Available in both yellow and black, it is easily cleanable, durable, abrasion-resistant and covered by a limited warranty.

The G-Form Extreme Sleeve is priced at $60 or £45
