G-Form makes a wide variety of impact protection gear. Though they mainly focus on sports – biking and skateboarding, particularly – they also make a variety of gadget cases, including cases for the Kindle Fire, the iPad, and laptops. Of course, if you’re going to make high quality pads and cases, you have to test them, right? Of course you do! And what better way to test your super-durable iPad case than letting it float nearly 20 miles into the air on a weather balloon, then letting it plummet back to the rocky Nevada desert?

Yes, really. Don’t believe it? Well, apparently they thought you might not, so they rigged a camera to the iPad and put the video on YouTube. Check it out below, then let us know what you think in the comments.

    Yeah, sure going to 100,000 feet and then landing 70 feet away. Sure, only if it’s a vacuum

      It didn’t land 70 feet away. They tracked it to the point where it landed
