Some time ago Apple applied for a patent to help their iPhones to “fall like a cat.” I know what you’re thinking, well no I don’t but here’s what I’m thinking, why would you want your phone to flail about and scratch the everliving hell out of you when you drop it?
I guess that’s not what they were going for, they are trying to geek screens from breaking. Which is a noble pursuit I suppose because the last iPhone I saw dropped exploded so spectacularly that I was surprised when no one was killed.
I suppose this new technology will replace the current format where iPhones are trained to fall like a piece of toast. So that they always land face down.
