[Editor's Note: Not the actual case. We lost ours.]
Over the last few days we've been checking out the iPhone Glider Case by INtech. It's a revolutionary new case design that protects your iPhone 4 from drops. It's a two-layer design. The inner-layer is a shatter-resistant polycarbonate, while the outside is made of a foam rubber that reduces impact.
The most interesting thing about this case, however, is how it handles a fall. It has two little flaps on side that act as "wings." When it drops, the iPhone floats safely to the ground, leaving your device undamaged.
We tried it from a short distance of two feet the first time, and the iPhone safely drifted to the carpet beneath it. We kept trying to take it higher and higher. We found that you can safely hold this thing at ear level, and if it drops, your iPhone will land gently, thanks to the glider technology.
To take it through a real test, we got on the roof of iSmashPhone HQ. We dropped our iPhone and a gust of wind caught it. It sailed away and out of our lives forever. Unfortunately, we never set up FindMyiPhone because bloggers don't leave the house much, and we felt no need to.
Sadly, we can't finish this review, because we didn't get more hands-on with the case. Still, if we had to, we would give it five stars because we've gone back to our social lives. The wife no longer yells at us for checking our email while having dinner. We haven't posted a tweet in almost two days and we're noticing that Facebook will do just fine without our status updates. This case literally changed our lives.
