G-Form demonstrates the company's 6oz Extreme Edge case for Apple's iPad by lifting the tablet to over 100,000 feet by a weather balloon which then bursts and releases the iPad to free-fall to Earth where it crashes on a rocky hillside.

The iPad still works, and interestingly the non-protected camera which shot a video of the whole ordeal also still works!
The company released a stunning hi-def video Thursday where the nearly naked iPad is shown hanging above the Earth in the blackness of space. In the video, the iPad is lifted to over 100,000 feet by a weather balloon which bursts at altitude, then releasing the iPad to free-fall to Earth where it crash lands on a rocky hillside in the Nevada countryside. Perhaps even more remarkable than the dramatic hi-def footage itself is the fact that the iPad survives the adventure, remaining fully functional.
