iPad Survives Free-fall From Space

G-Form is a company that specializes in making protective gear for sportsmen, have expanded their product line to electronics protection cases and military/tactical gear.

The company launched an iPad tied to a weather balloon with a 6oz Extreme Edge case into space and then let it free-fall back to Earth. The iPad has managed to survive a fall from a height of around 100000 feet.

They didn’t have to go to extreme to prove a point, but definitely gave them a much better publicity by uploading the video on YouTube. Still, it’s entertaining to watch. The 6oz Extreme Edge case is available for $45.
