Inflatable iPhone Case that opens upon Impact
I am not sure if anyone has made something like this but I thought it might be a cool idea for a weekend project or product. Here's the pitch:
Have you ever dropped your precious iPhone in the water or on the ground? Wouldn't it be great if someone could create a simple case that inflates like an airbag before the phone hits the ground or water. The case could read accelerometer data from the phone and when it detects free-fall, if could use a Co2 cartridge to inflate an air bag type device that saves the device from sinking into the water or hitting the hard sidewalk.
It's just an idea. If anyone wants to discuss this idea, feel free to comment below. I'll let you have all of the rights to this idea if you want it.
