Watch this guy smash his hand to protect his phone [VIDEO]

Smashing your hand with a hammer is a slightly unconventional way to debut a product, but the perfect way to demonstrate the tech behind the world’s strongest smartphone case.

Faron Sagebiel of Tech21 risked his hand to prove the safety of his phone in the company’s new Impact Band iPhone 5 case at the Mobile World Conference Sunday, wrapping his fingers in the secret polymer fiber used to mold the cases and smashing them repeatedly with a mallet as hard as he could.


The malleable, molecular-intelligent D30 polymer, which Tech21 refers to as its “secret ingredient,” left Sagebiel’s fingers unscathed, meaning it would leave any phone reasonably safe against the occasional sidewalk fall. Tech21 retails the case for $29.99.
