    Holy crap!!!! That was some crazy stuff! That's cool how they would chuck the iPod touch against the wall and drop it from a 2 story height. I'm amazed so far and this could be the ultimate case protection by far.

    This looks promising. If they get it in several different colors I might be want to pick up one.

    company is UK based

    Maybe our UK members have some experience with some of there products. I contacted them to see if there are plans to come to the US case was 24.95 GBP
    which is about $40 us. if the case does what it says or even half as good it would be worth it.

    it does not look like it has anything for the buttons or the ringer switch.

    That's what she said.

    (w/ apologies)


    Actually, the case looks great but would be better if some clear magic substance covered the back and front, i.e., if it wasn't just a "band."

    look at the above photo

    they are coming out with a case that covers the back the poster above has a photo of it, and I posted a link. I also said that they showed other colors with it, just have to wait a little longer. :D clear however I think might be a problem.

    But what about the screen? I thought the screen was the most fragile part of the iPhone.

    well

    nothing in the world is perfect lol. they showed it landing in the screen personly I like a screen protector I know they have there down side but have that small layer between what ever and my screen is worth it. I only have to drop it once and it only has to protect it once to get my money's worth. ;) btw they say they officially expect to be in the us in about 3 months. :D but that one place I posted above has the band now I want to wait for a full case then I might try it.

    He kept losing credibility every time he said "iTouch."
    Why do people call it this? There is no "iTouch" device. Don't be lazy, say the extra syllable and call it the iPod Touch.

    because

    Apple puts I in front of so many things people just presume it I just tongue and cheek it I have to admit to making the mistake a few times. heck half the apps in Itues start with I. if they make a good case who cares.

    I was liking the idea of this case but do we have any proof that this is actually better then any other type of protection? silicone, fusion case, or hard plastic?

    I bet you could drop a "itouch" from that roof in a candyshell and it probably would be ok too.

    I dont really see the difference between this and a nice thick silicone frame style case. I know in theory this is amazing but i'd rather see head to head combat with this case and others.

    I would have said this case and a wrapsol on the back FTW! but i'll have to wait.
