There were doubters last time . They said a 1300 foot drop wasn’t all that much. It wasn’t a true test. It fell onto grass, they said. Well, G-Form is back with another marketing ploy.

This time they sent an iPad encased in G-Form’s $45 Extreme Edge case to the cusp of space and back. The iPad of course survived. It’s an impressive feat if it really happened.
