Honda has created a smartphone case that will enable your phone to survive literally any fall.

When dropped from mid-air or met with excessive force, the case releases an emergency airbag that protects it from getting cracked or breaking.

The case is big and you won’t be able to carry your phone in your pocket, but we trust that, like everything else on earth, a more compact model will soon be produced.

The idea of a smartphone case with an airbag was actually proposed by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in 2011.

Amazon even filed a patent for the tiny bags. It’ll be interesting to see what Jeff (and most importantly Amazon’s lawyers) make of this video, since this is pretty much what he had in mind.

Will a partnership emerge or will Honda have to fork over some licensing fees?
