G-Form is no stranger when comes to iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad drop tests using the company’s high-impact cases. This time around G-Form decided to drop an iPod Touch 5th generation in the G-form XTREME iPhone 5 case. The case is made out of Reactive Protection Technology™ with a rigid outer polycarbonate shell and an inner shock-absorbing TPE insert. The device fits snug in the case and is attached to a weather balloon along with a GPS and a camera. The company tracks the iPod Touch 5G with the GPS and takes off in a helicopter after the ballon has launched into space.
This video was done in the Nevada desert near Area-51, and no there weren’t any aliens to be seen. The iPod Touch 5G is seen on camera as it hits over 100,000 feet then plummets to the Earth’s ground. During the fall, the camera was unable to withstand the freezing weather so close to space, but you still get a chance to see a little bit of the Earth from a sight like never before.
The iPod Touch 5G later landed 41 miles from the launch site where it was found by the G-Form crew. The crew picked up the iPod Touch 5th generation and the G-form XTREME iPhone 5 case, where the device had no scratches and worked good as new, even after a 100,000 ft. fall. The G-form XTREME iPhone 5 case can now be purchased for $39.99 over at the website.
