TiPb TV 19: The iPhone 4 Case Rocket

If they're going to call their iPhone 4 case "Bombproof", Incipio had better bloody well mean it, because you know we're going to test it... by putting it up against the new Verizon iPhone-friendly Otterbox Defender in another Amazing Case episode of TiPb TV!

Fortunately, real bombs bring with them real jail time (and not the kind you can break) so we tried to figure out what else we could do that involved smoke and fire and explosions and power written all over it?

Hit play above and find out!

TiPb TV 19: The iPhone 4 Case Rocket


That was awesome. The end reminded me of the classic "You're going to need a bigger boat" line from Jaws. OT a bit, does it ever get warm or green in Canada? :)

This looks like it will be fun but you gotta remember to turn on the video camera function on the iPhones so we get "in flight" footage...
--Rob Terry

Why don't you just shoot a rocket AT the cases like they do in that verizon commercial? Set up a horizontal wire to guide the rocket directly to the cases, and voila! Just be sure to leave your iPhones inside! I think that would be a better test than actually trying to launch iphones into the hundredfootosphere.

Like how they just gave up but the best part of the video has to be Georgia's reaction to the first missile she's in hysterics I can't beleiv they didn't actually test it but it's still awsome video!

This is great. The reaction is priceless.
I'm not sure why they thought it would fly.
What would be cool is making a new version of the weather balloon video. This time, use several weather balloons and have the camera balanced a little better.

Hahaha, this reminds me of some Top Gear would do. If you haven't seen that show, check it out, guys. They do all kinds of stunts like this...but with cars LOL. Might give ya some fresh new ideas to destroy those iPhones too :)

Did you really say you were looking for something that "said disaster" and then cut to a video of the Space Shuttle? lol Really?

When I worked at AT&T, several years back, we used to play "hacky-sack" with phones that had this case on them. It is a very good case, and a very big one. It'll protect the screen, as long as you don't drop it on some sharp object, like a rock.

LOL!!!! WTF?! Those cant do shit! Even an A engine has 1000000 times more power than a bottle with water and a few psi of air

  1. You don't strap an object to an aerodynamic rocket hoping it will take off.
  2. Even if that worked, it's not an explosion test. It's a drop test.
  3. Your more likely to injure someone in that park than just going a few miles into a bushland clearing and strapping it to a sparkler/deodorant bomb to get the results your looking for. Trust me I'm a ninja.
