An engineering student has designed a mobile airbag to protect your phone from accidental damage.
What makes this particular design impressive, is the fact that the mobileairbag is able to keep the smartphone's screen from getting damaged, with Frenzel demonstrating how the prongs work when the prototype phone is dropped display side first. But usually, they come at a price apart from adding more bulk to the handsets that we have to carry around in our pockets.
The design involves a casing with a set of eight thin metal curls that normally lie flat inside the case. They absorb impact like springs (or an airbag, like the name suggests), as your phone bounces around without ever making contact with any surface.
The case isn't being sold commercially, but Frenzel has patented the technology.
AT&T is Raising the Price of All DIRECTV NOW Tiers by $5/Month
That means the DirecTV Now packages that currently cost $35, $50, $60, and $70 a month will go up to $40, $55, $65, and $75. AT&T confirmed the price increase to Ars Technica and said it began informing customers of the increase this past weekend.
If this case really performs as well as it does in the video above, when your phone finally hits the ground, it will just harmlessly bounce around before coming to a rest, safe and sound with nary a crack.
For this reason, many choose to buy protective cases that shield the device from accidental drops or bumps. Once deployed, the dampers can be pushed back into the case, meaning you can use it again.
A Mobile Airbag Kickstarter campaign will launch next month allowing interested buyers to fund the project.
