    Hello all. I've just remembered that there was a case that protects your Macbook Pro, as well as the iPad, from bowling ball drops, car driving over, dropping from 2nd floor, etc. I remembered that it was a company called G-Form.
    There was another video, where the man had some sort of jell that protects m&m from breaking even if you hammer it. What was that one called?

    EDIT: Just found it. It's called FastMac Impact Shield.

    I checked it out after seeing this post and it looks amazing! Anyone ever actually tried one out?

    At $2,000 a pop for a 15" MBP I don't think anyone would try it (on purpose)

    Sounds like it's something more useful for a space lander than laptop. They should go after that multi-million market instead.

    I have one of their impact shield iphone cases. Its made of the same stuff, just thinner. It seems like a pretty good case. Anyone else have one? Do they work?

    Wow this is a must have, i must immediately get me one of those, imagine all those times when a car ran over my MBP and i had to get a new one, wish i had this case, though i can get a new MBP for less, that makes it a difficult choice. Is this case one time use only?? I mean is it useless after a car has run over your MBP or can it still be used?? I might get it if it is reusable.
