A few weeks ago a video surfaced from a company called G-Form. They make protective gear for sports but have now expanded into protecting laptops and the iPad/iPad 2. If you saw their demo video it showed a bowling ball being dropped 3 feet onto the screen of the iPad 2. It survived in fully working condition. No scratches.

Personally, I found that amazing and have had some fun testing this case out. It comes in black and yellow and is priced at $60. The Extreme Sleeve has an intense, rugged design and is made of “Reactive Protection Technology” that can protect from the usual drops, falls and puddles. To test this case out I threw it around a couple times and decided to run a car over it. Bottom line, the case does what it says it should. Video after the break…

    This product is great for transporting the iPad (or any tablet that fits inside the case). So it fits a niche market.

    Most people that owns the tablets are using it at home anyway, unless you have kids at home that throws your iPad 5 feet up in the air, I don’t see any benefits for home use.

      You’re right, most of the time you are just going to look like an iDouche-bag carrying the iPad around anywhere out of the house. 7″ tablets are much more inconspicuous, and truly “portable”. Do they make this case in a smaller version?

    Accidents always happens when the pad is outside the sleeve.

    Hey,

    How much money did G-form pay you to make the commercial lol. Try hitting it with a hammer, if it works ill buy one.

    Thanks

    Is this the same case which was thrown out from a helicopter? This is awesome!

    Unfortunately when it comes to this case it’s not very practical your looking at spending at least 105$ to get a functional case as you need the Extreme sleeve and the smart cover since the case can’t be folded to make a keyboard. Amazing case. it simply as little to no practical use.

    Hah, that must have been a nerve-wracking couple of seconds once the music had stopped.
