If you don’t think that duct tape is sufficient for protecting your iPad, you might want to check into this case from the guys at G-Form. Just how well will G-Form’s new Extreme Sleeve protect your iPad from damage?

Well if you are to believe this dramatic demo video, the G-Form Extreme Sleeve, made from durable foam, can protect your delicate glass iPad from the impact of a 12 pound bowling ball dropped from 3 feet onto the face of an iPad sitting on a concrete slab.

Pretty amazing, eh? So much for the hard case. The G-Form’s unique impact-resistant sleeve, made from PORON® XRD™ – originally designed for protecting athletes from sports injuries – is designed to be soft and flexible until hit, which turns them into shock absorbers, capable of absorbing up to 90% of the energy of an impact. Screw my iPad, can I wrap my car in this stuff?

You can pre-order the iPad Extreme Sleeve over at G-Form for $59.95 (USD).

  1. Now lets be honest here most gear in the mobile technology world is prone to being fragile, and the main reason why people use protective cases for their smartphones and tablets so they don’t get scratched or damaged.

    However not all cases save your device from a drop or something heavy falling on it, but if you own an Apple iPad there is a case that seems to be quite tough, tough enough to withstand the weight of a bowling ball being dropped on it.
