This is probably both the worst scientific test and stupidest thing I have seen in a while. These guys thought it would be interesting to see whether or not the iPad 2’s Smart Cover could provide the device with protection when dropped on concrete.
The guys dropped a few iPads in their scientific efforts.
The video is hilarious. Especially the commentary with sound bites such as “aaah”, “that did not sound good at all” and “that’s a big difference” heard throughout the 2 minute long video.
The conclusion is that the Smart Cover will possibly protect your iPad. But please don’t do what these guys did. If you want to drop your iPad, then get a G-Form case and throw that baby around the room and drop your iPad from planes to your heart’s content.
