Sleeved iPad 2 run over by car, survives

A few weeks ago, the folks who make the G-Form sleeve for iPads and laptops dropped an encased iPad 2 out of a plane. Now a Web site, using the same sleeve, has run an iPad 2 over with a car.

The $59.99 G-Form 'extreme' sleeve comes in yellow or black. G-Form

Last month, in a marketing stunt, an iPad 2 encased in a $59.99 G-Form "extreme" sleeve was tossed out of a plane and survived just fine. So what, right? Who drops their iPad out of a plane?

Well, the folks over at the Canadian Web site Mobile Syrup decided to do a more practical test: they ran a G-Form-protected iPad 2 over with a car.

In a bit of drama, after they ran it over, they discovered that the video they had running during the test had stopped playing. But once the sleeve came off, the iPad ended up turning on just fine.

Note to Android fanboys who will take issue with us writing up another Apple story: the Motorola Xoom should fit inside the G-Form sleeve.
