Turns out the folks over at Honda created a smartphone case that deploys an airbag when your phone senses it is falling to its doom.
-Check out a video of the design development below:
As of now it is just a proof of concept, but in the future the design will be engineered within a slimmer package that would lessen the 'bulk' in your pocket. Either way, it is stated that it 'guarantees' that your device will survive 'any' fall.
On a side note, I would hate for this thing to accidentally deploy in my pocket... Yyyooouuuch...!!!
