iPad Dropped From 19 Miles Up -- the 'Edges of Space' -- And Survives!

"Still going."

This isn't the first time The Blaze has reported on the G-Form case for iPads and the tests its manufacturer puts the expensive gear through to prove its product's function. Last year, the iPad in a G-Form case went for a 1,300-foot skydive and was tossed out of a 113 mph car -- it went unscathed in both instances.

G-Form's newest test puts these former crash-course missions to shame. Watch as it is dropped from the "edges of what we'll call space:"

As the spokesperson in the video says, they expect the iPad to reach 100,000 feet. Earth's atmosphere ends roughly around 100 kilometers -- 62 miles. So, the iPad didn't quite make it to space, only traveling up about 19 miles. Even still, it lands back to earth in working condition.
