    Default G–Form iPad Extreme Sleeve Protects iPad from Falling Bowling Balls


    The iPad has countless options available when it comes to protective sleeves and cases, but how many of them can protect a precious iPad from a falling bowling ball drop of three feet? G–Form has announced the iPad Extreme Sleeve, a soft flexible, water resistant sleeve that is so tough, it can protect an iPad from just about any random bowling ball attack.

    G-Form is best known for their innovative shock absorbing protective pads that are capable of absorbing 90% of the energy from a high-speed impact. They offer a wide variety of protective gear including shin, knee and elbow pads that are lightweight and flexible.

    Although this is G-Form's first foray into protective gear for the iPad, it's certainly not going to be their last. The website administrator recently stated, “Stay tuned, if it’s a valuable electronic, G-Form will soon be your source for protection.”

    If you're not planning on taking your iPad to the bowling alley anytime soon, then rest assured that your iPad is still in good hands with the Extreme Sleeve. It's equally good at protecting an iPad from the usual bumps and bruises that you're more likely to encounter in your day-to-day life. G-Form also protects your screen from accidental zipper scratches and an iPad 2 equipped with a magnetic Smart Cover can easily fit in this sleeve as well. The iPad Extreme Sleeve will set you back about $60 when it comes out in early May, but you can pre-order one today if you prefer. Now I just wonder how it’ll stacks up against a cinderblock?

    If only the iPad (and iPhone and iPod) where random bowling balls falling from three feet resistant without the case *dreams on*

    Looks great - I want one! If only their knowledge and skills could help the cameraman tell the difference between filming portrait and landscape on camera phone.

    Yeah, but I'm more likely to drop the iPad on its edge... how does it protect the sides and corners?

    How often do you drop bowling balls on your penis?
    Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

    Why just last night I was wishing for a way to protect my iPad against highly unlikely projectiles and falling debris, lord knows I keep my iPad in the closet right beneath the obscenely heavy objects, always in fear of the random Rube-Goldberg scenario and I also have a propensity to surf the web at the epicenter of ground zero, mid-spiral on an aircraft after reaching drool peeling g-forces, you just never know when the urge to tweet will hit you.. I guess if you had to you could use the sleeve to cover your nether-regions from falling pianos, bowling balls... Stiletto heels.. Finally I'll retain the upper hand when Wile E. Coyote retaliates with his acme anvils and bowling balls, maybe if your neighbor was Gallagher or Charlie Sheen this might come in useful once or twice a year. Sometimes its better to have and not need then to have and actually need it, our economy is based on that you know.. Thing looks like it fell off the back of a Japanese mech-robot or something.
