We’ve all seen countless videos on YouTube of people torturing their devices. Whether they’re being blended, driven over, boiled in water or stuck in a freezer, there seems to be no end to this madness.

The latest comes from case-manufacturers G-Form, who took it upon themselves to bundle an iPod in one of their iPhone 5 cases – and then drop it from 100,000 feet above the earth. Unfortunately, the video below shows the camera dying at about 40,000 feet supposedly due to extreme temperatures. The next shot is of the case landing safely back on earth, with the iPod intact. While the legitimacy of the video can be calling into question, it’s still worth investing in a good case for your iPhone or iPod, which seem to have a knack for flying off tables.
