The chances that you’ll need an iPhone case that’ll let you drop your phone from space without breaking is slim, but who cares? It’s fun to be able to hand your phone to someone and say “Yo…chuck this against a wall. It won’t break, it can even withstand falling form SPACE!” According to Metro,
‘Our cases already meet military drop-test standards, but now we can officially say that they are space tested as well,’ said Steve Armstrong, co-founder of UAG [Urban Armor Gear].
Are you ever going to need a space-tested iPhone case? No. But will you shell out for it anyway just for the sake of owning superfluously expensive shit? Probably.
