Can a wad of green, bouncy goo save an iPhone from impact damage? Let this video tell you!

In what we deem the wackiest, most bizarre iPhone torture test video we've ever witnessed, team GizmoSlip cooked up a flubber from regular kitchen ingredients, encased an iPhone SE in green goo like an alien object, threw it from a rooftop and let it splatter all over on the ground... in the name of science.

As it turns out, flubber can only do so much to protect one's smartphone from such deadly drops, despite its rubbery aesthetic and bouncy qualities. But we're not going to spoil the outcome of this zany video. Watch yourself and don't try this at home, unless mixing glue, Borax, food coloring and water sounds really fascinating to you.

I don't understand why idiots make these videos. If you set out to destroy your phone, you will destroy it. If I dropped a person from 100FT, they aren't going to die. They will suffer some fractures or bruises and cuts. These types of videos showing a phone survive a drop with these types of stunts is dumb. Yet I dropped my iPhone 4S on a tile floor and it cracked the glass on the front, and the from was from 36".

It makes them money - it doesn't matter which device they drop - they don't care to prove anything, nor do they care whether the device works or not as a result. The idea is to make a YouTube video and make sure it's "Apple". No many people are interested unless it's "Apple". Apple videos or articles bring in the most revenue.
