They have previously dropped an iPad out of a plane as well as launching a bowling ball on one.

But G-Form have now gone one step further in order to prove just how tough their protective iPad cases are.

The firm has dropped an Apple tablet from the edge of space and, incredibly, it survived.

As a YouTube video shows, G-Form attached the iPad and case to a weather balloon which carried it 100,000ft up.

The entire journey was captured on a video attached to the balloon.

Correct me if im wrong, but surely it wouldnt matter how far up you went from a plane - seeing as it will hit terminal velocity anyway?

This is true. It wouldn't matter, but what's cooler sounding? iPad dropped from a plane or iPad dropped from THE EDGE OF SPACE!?

Anyhow... this doesn't make me want an iPad or a G-Form any more than I didn't want it before ;P

Well even my dog can survive falling from this far with ballons. The true matter is if it can survive just thrown down to earth.

    I really do not want to move to California otherwise I might consider it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah California is not anywhere you really want to live
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot probably still works for Blizzard would love to reconnect with that guy
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I wonder what ever happened to Wargasm?
  • The Helper The Helper:

  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    lol I live in CA
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    I've got some friends in animation department who have been applying for Blizzard, doing interviews and such. They said the workplace seems nice, though now it'd be all remote work I suppose
  • The Helper The Helper:
    good for them I live close to Austin and am trying to get my kids interested in getting into Games but not having much luck. I would never let them move to Cali.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    unless it was huge money
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and even then with the taxes I really could never let them move there
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    Haha fair enough, I have no interest in CA at all as a living place either. Really only here just for the work in LA, but hopefully once I get settled enough in my work, I can move out
