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.
