Remember Apple's patent for corner protectors in the iPhone's screen that pop up to cushion a potential fall, saving you on that expensive display replacement? Or Amazon's airbag phone protection idea? Well, these have been reimagined a bit, in the form of an iPhone 7 concept with what seems like rocket boosters of sorts, which would fire up before the phone touches the ground. In fact, the concept video suggests a system of valves and nozzles in the corners which would be controlled by the accelerometer and orientation sensors to release gas from a small tank that would prevent the iPhone from crashing to the floor unimpeded.
ShatterShield tech of Motorola's new Droid Turbo 2 proves, one needn't go to such extremes in order to make a hard-to-break display.

Why not just have a shatterproof glass like the Droid Turbo 2.

I've got a concept. Put a mini infinite improbability drive in the phone that activates when it senses it's dropping and turns the floor into cotton candy or banana pudding. Boom! I'm a designer.
