Back in late Nov, iPhone case maker Urban Armor Gear sent an iPhone into space utilizing a weather condition balloon, and in very early January, the website shared a video depicting the iPhone’s trip to the air in an Urban Shield Gear situation.
The iPhone rose 101,000 feet into the environment, and underwent 70 mile each hour winds and temperatures that dropped to -79 degrees Fahrenheit. Though activated at launch, the iPhone later on shut off and iced up due to the chilly weather
Urban Armor Equipment linkeded the iPhone up to a weather balloon rig that also included a GPS locator and 2 GoPro electronic cameras for filming. After descent, the iPhone and the trip rig held up against 150 Revoltions Per Minute turning rates, and at landing, the rig broke while the iPhone took care of to continue to be unharmed.
“Our situations currently meet army drop-test requirements, today we could officially claim that they are space tested too,” stated Steve Armstrong, co-founder of Urban Armor Equipment. “That the iPhone endured its space journey and returned fully functioning showcases our dedication in providing our consumers first-rate, or in this situation out of this globe, security for their costs devices.”
The iPhone was protected by an Urban Shield composite instance which assures military-grade defense, yet it did not have a screen guard and still managed to come out undamaged. After landing, the iPhone powered back on and was fully useful, showing the resilience and strong building of the device.
