iPads aren’t designed to take a beating, but as we saw with G-Form’s Extreme Sleeve, it can survive a 12-lb bowling ball dropped from 3 feet.  Still not convinced?  Not a problem.  The fine folks at G-Form are taking their sleeve’s protective qualities to new heights, literally.  Using a paraglider they dropped the iPad 2 wrapped in their G-Form Extreme Sleeve from a 500ft drop.  Did it survive?  Probably safe to assume so, but to be sure we suggest you take a gander at the below video.  The one dude is so excited, and perhaps shocked by the outcome, that he can hardly follow his co-workers direction.  Safe to say this was their first and last attempt.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
