A while back I was doing a review of a Tech21 case, which uses non-Newtonian material to absorb impact and protect your phone, when I did a drop test and... promptly broke my phone. I was an edge-case — literally, I somehow managed to hit an edge — and not only did the Tech21 case remain my favorite of the year, I simply had to seek them out at #CES 2014 and see what more they'd come up with for this year.
