Watch an iPad Survive a Freefall From Space

G-Form has put iPads through some serious torture in the name of, err, angular yellow iPad cases? Whatever. This is an iPad (and a Go-Pro!) falling from over 100,000 feet—high enough to see the curvature of the Earth and the black of space.


In addition to shooting expensive gadgets into the stratosphere, G-Form's also got a new iPhone case that we're told will be out the week of CES. It'll be $40, but that's about all we know about it right now. Though if the trajectory of these videos holds to form, we'll be showing you video of an iPhone being hurled into the Sun in a week or two. [G-Form]

I get that this is basically a hype/marketing video, but it's silly.

Sure after falling 50 or so feet the thing has hit terminal velocity, but we're going to drop it a trillion bazillion feet! Wow! Dig us!
