An iPad Survives Fall From Space


The test of a good product is a demonstration, so when G Form want to show off how good their cases are, what better way would there be to demonstrate its properties than by dropping it from a hundred thousand feet of so, yes that is the edge of space! Remarkably, they manage to transport the device, case, tracker and HD camera by balloon. NASA please note, balloons are much cheaper than space craft! Of course, the iPad survived as did the case and camera too!

These are the details of the stunt that come with the video;

The company released a stunning hi-def video Thursday where the nearly naked iPad is shown hanging above the Earth in the blackness of space. In the video, the iPad is lifted to over 100,000 feet by a weather balloon which bursts at altitude, then releasing the iPad to free-fall to Earth where it crash lands on a rocky hillside in the Nevada countryside. Perhaps even more remarkable than the dramatic hi-def footage itself is the fact that the iPad survives the adventure, remaining fully functional.
