Smartphone airbag can protect your device from smashing

Smartphone airbag can protect your device from smashing

The case senses when your phone is in free fall and releases metal prongs to protect it from damage.

An ingenious new case aims to protect your smartphone without adding bulk to it, by deploying a sort of a mobile airbag when necessary.

Created by Philip Frenzel, a student from Aalen University in Germany, the device has a set of springs that pop out when it detects the iPhone is falling, giving it a soft landing when it hits the ground, preventing the screen from breaking.

He said: "There's some big teams gone out of the World Cup and this could be the year England can go far and hopefully win it". England continues to show its a contender, especially on the lighter side of the bracket, moving on with a narrow victory.

Reported on Preview Online, Philip Frenzel, 25, who is now completing his mechatronics master's degree at the university, came up with what he calls his "mobile airbag" after accidently shattering his own brand-new phone when he casually tossed his jacket and pocketed phone over a banister. Like we said this is more effective than other cases because the springs will help absorb and distribute the impact, versus cases in which the force could still cause some damage to internal components.

While most phone cases do a stellar job of protecting handsets when they hit the deck, some drops prove too much, leaving you with a damaged handset and a costly fix bill.

It's not for sale yet, but Frenzel has already acquired a patent for the device. The German Society for Mechatronics gave Frenzel the top award for his innovative case. The springs can easily be folded back into their holsters when you pick up the phone. Once the AD Case is in place, it functions as a regular rechargeable battery as well as a fall protection system. Frenzel is reportedly planning to commercialise the case starting with a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.
