I’ve watched a lot of iPad case demo videos- but this is the first one I’ve seen where the iPad gets a 60 miles-per-hour joyride on the top of a Porsche’s trunk.
Oh, and quick spoiler alert – the iPad survives unscathed. The case being shown off here, and keeping that joyriding iPad safe, is a Sofshell – which is described like so:
SofShell is a crystal clear case so you can still show off your beloved (yet not anti-gravity) iPad or iPad 2, while keeping it protected. Unlike many cases that aren’t compatible with the Smart Cover, SofShell fully encases the iPad 2 bezel and Smart Cover hinge to hold the Smart Cover in place.
Why does it stay in place better than other cases? SofShell is made from a proprietary elastomer that outperforms Silicone, Neoprene, Rubber, Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) and plastic cases. In fact, SofShell provides super anti-slip protection on angles up to 70˚.
Here’s the joyriding video:
I’ve also watched a longer demo of the Sofshell and it looks quite an interesting case option. I’ll likely be looking at a review unit soon – though I’m not hopeful about them sending a Porsche along with it for more more thorough testing.
