iPad ready for Astronauts with butterfingers

Boy, I never get tired of these “Our iPhone/iPod/iPad case is so tough it can withstand (insert something that seems crazy)” videos. Actually, I’m lying. I’m fairly tied of these. Although I will say that G-Form’s video of their iPad safely dropping from space onto a rocky mountain has two things going for it. ONE, it’s nicely shot and has a pretty sweet shot of the Earth’s horizon. And TWO, it makes a hell of a lot more sense than that ZooGue video of an iPad being dipped in Lava. At least it actually shows the case, and the case protects the iPad. Of course, if G-Form REALLY wants to prove its case is tough, I challenge them to give me a 64 GB iPad 2 in one of their cases for a full TWO YEARS and see if it survives!

iPad Survives 100,000+ Foot Fall From Space Near Area 51

PROVIDENCE, RI (January 6, 2012) – G-Form, a company well known for delivering the most extreme electronics cases and athletic pads, launched an iPad clad solely in the company’s 6oz Extreme Edge case into space and then let it free-fall back to Earth.

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.

    I can’t see much point (other then the coolness factor) of dropping it from much more then 100′. I wonder what the terminal velocity of an iPad is? Once it’s there it ain’t going any faster.
