Genius Student Invented A “Mobile Airbag” That Deploys When You Drop Your Phone, And The Video Will Impress You

This gadget hasn’t hit the shelves yet but it’s already getting great reviews. Philip Frenzel, a student at Aalen University in Germany, has designed ADCASE, a genius phone case that deploys as soon as you drop your device. The invention has already won Frenzel the top award from the German Society for Mechatronics which considered projects from students all over the country.

At first, Frenzel created an activation mechanism with sensors that detect when the phone is in free fall. But what does it activate? He initially thought of designing an actual airbag on the phone. That and a foam-based alternative, however, simply didn’t prove practical. Eventually, instead of something soft, Frenzel has settled on something firm. Springs.

So far the device is compatible only with iPhones but that may change in the future. To fund the project, the student plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign in July.

This engineering student, however, has created a device that will help you forget broken screens

He 3d-printed its parts

When a phone is dropped, the device acts as an airbag, allowing it to safely reach the ground
