Cases Protect iPads And Tablets Like Superman Would

Nov. 17, 2011
G-Form’s cases for iPad, Kindle Fire, or other seven-inch tablets will protect the components in a fall of 1,300 feet to the ground.

If you are like most people and value your personal electronics more than everything and everyone else around you, then you may want to consider using one of G-Form’s  cases for your iPad, Kindle Fire, or other seven-inch tablets. According to the company, their cases will protect your tablet should it just so happen to fall 1,300 feet to the ground in a skydiving mishap. The cases will also ensure your precious device’s safety in the advent you decide to toss it from a car that’s traveling at a not so politically-correct speed of 113 mph. 

Originally for the iPad, G-Form’s Reactive Protection Technology (RPT), which has been proven to sustain deadly drops, is now available for Kindle Fire and other similar-size tablets. In one demonstration video, skydivers use iPads housed in G-Form’s Extreme Edge and Extreme Portfolio cases while free falling from 13,000 feet. Then they drop the enclosed iPads to the ground from about 1,300 feet, which make and survive the impact without any damage. 

In a second demo video, the G-Form RPT flexible technology protects an iPad thrown onto concrete pavement from a car cruising at 113 mph, impacting the iPad screen face down and then on virtually every corner of an Extreme Edge case. Once again, damage is nonexistent. 

The Extreme Portfolio and Extreme Edge cases are made almost entirely of RPT material. In essence, it is a composite blend of PORON XRD material with other proprietary G-Form materials and technology. As per the company, RPT absorbs over 90% of impact energy and momentarily stiffens on impact to act like an armor shield.

On another high note, all G-Form electronic protective cases are designed and manufactured in the United States of America.  The Extreme Portfolio, Extreme Edge, and Extreme Sleeve cases are available on G-Form’s website, priced at $39.95, $34.95, and $29.95, respectively, in both yellow and black.

So, if you ever find yourself needing to skydive while working with your iPad or other tablet, you may want to consider using the appropriate G-Form case. Should both of your chutes fail to open, you will find solace in knowing your precious tablet will live on; happy landings!
