What’s the terminal velocity of an iPad?  We don’t know, but we know that it can survive a fall of more than 1,300 feet, provided of course it’s encased in G-Form’s Extreme Edge or the Extreme Portfolio iPad case.

In the past we’ve seen G-Form drop a bowling ball on the iPad as well as from helicopter.  Thanks to their RPT tech, which was originally designed to protect athletes, Apple’s tablet didn’t suffer a single scratch.  These videos were convincing to the say the least, but apparently it wasn’t good enough for the G-Form team.  So they strapped on their sky diving gear, toted along their iPads and flung themselves from an airplane traveling well above the Earth’s surface.  After pulling their ‘shutes, and floating for a second they dropped the iPads, letting them free fall to the ground.  The result?  Not a scratch.  The iPads were still fully functional as proved by the above video.

So what’s the moral of this story?  If you’ve got crazed kids, or a desire to perform extreme sports with your iPad, get one of G-Form’s sleeves.
