Have you ever wondered if an iPad 3 would still work if frozen in a block of ice, or what would happen if you then threw that block off of a ladder to shatter on the ground?
The boys at ZooGue, a company that makes cases for Mac products, apparently have.
Watch the video, below (Note: there's a fair amount of self-promotion in it):
Amazingly, even when encased in a thick block of ice, the iPad still works. By putting a magnetized object near it, simulating an iPad cover, the device turns off and on. When the block is rotated, the screen still reacts perfectly.
Even more impressive, perhaps, the iPad survived the crash that destroyed the ice block it was encased in, after an employee threw it off a miniature ladder.
Not as impressive as the G-Form cover that insulated an ipad when dropped from the edges of outer space, perhaps, and certainly a primitive way to find entertainment in the technological miracle that is an iPad, but fascinating nonetheless.
