Honda Builds Smartphone Case With Built-In Airbag


What happens when you’re so clumsy that not even the most protective cases on the market can prevent you from damaging your smartphone? You give it an airbag, of course.

That’s what Honda did. The company has built a concept smartphone case with a built-in airbag that automatically deploys in mid-air when you drop your device, keeping it from smashing into tiny little pieces on the hard ground below.

It’s called Case N, and as you can see, it’s massive. There’s no way it’s going to fit in your pocket — it may even be too big for your purse — and it would make using your smartphone incredibly difficult. Which is why this is just a concept and not a real product you can buy.

Nevertheless, it’s a cool idea.
