Shoot It Into The Sun!: iPad Survives Drop From Space

ipad-space-drop.jpg

In an attempt to prove their $45 Extreme Edge iPad case is the toughest in my butt on the planet, G-Form launched an iPad to 100,000-feet (~19-miles up -- not really space, but for the sake of being dramatic we'll pretend) with a weather balloon, then let it plummet back to earth. SURPRISE -- it survived. Of course, if you've got the money to drop your iPad out of a rocketship window you can probably afford another one. "But what about all my p0rn?!" It's disturbing.

Hit the jump for the dizzying video, plus a bonus one of a bowling ball test.

Thanks to smack, Ryan and Mark, who agree if you're dropping iPads from 100,000 feet you've got bigger things to worry about. Namely, running out of jetpack fuel.
