We spent the day torturing phone cases at OtterBoxThe case-maker has an entire lab in Colorado designed to its products through the ringer in some crazy machines.
We're here at the OtterBox headquarters in Fort Collins, Colorado, and I'm standing in front of the P.I.T. This is the lab where a lot of the cases get put to the test in some pretty ridiculous looking chambers. So let's see what they got. So according to Paul, one of the things that come with most wear and tear to both phones and cases, are women's purses. And I can attest to that. This is The contents of my purse right now. And I'm actually going to put my phone into one of the cases. Keys. Car keys. Nail file. Nail file. Hairbrush. My sewing kit. Hand lotion. USB. All right. I'm going to zip it up. And then we tape it closed. Does it also dry it? Kidding. No, it doesn't dry. We'll drop it from four feet. Four feet, okay. And can I push the button? Sure. Alright. Three, two. Whoa! [LAUGH] Yeah. I smell lotion. [SOUND] The phone survived, the lotion did not. [SOUND] I see bubbles, that's a bad sign. No, that's okay. It's still shooting video, so I guess it still works. So what body of water do people drop their phones in the most? The toilet. Yuck. [LAUGH] Do you ever test it in the toilet? No. [LAUGH] No? Okay. So this is about selfie height. People drop it from there. This is, if you like to dunk your phone in basketball. You get crazy with it? Let's try it here. I'm worried more about myself than the power. [LAUGH] Watch the rope. One, two, three. Whoa. Well-deserved name, I would say. Thank you. Definitely the most fun of all the tests. It's pretty cool, we did a watermelon On this one time. I'll come back for that actually. [MUSIC] Nice.
