A German inventor has designed a secure smartphone case. To ensure the protection of the apparatus in the event of a fall, the development has springy legs - special plates that appear at the moment of a fall.
The novelty is also equipped with a touch sensor, which is designed to activate the protective structure of the case during the "free flight" of the phone.
Although the displays and cases of many modern devices are made of reliable materials, the risk of damage from this does not completely disappear. Most users prefer to additionally protect the device with auxiliary means. The most shock-resistant devices are able to prevent the consequences of dropping a smartphone even from long distances, but most often such devices are rather bulky and not always ergonomic.
The cover was developed by the German engineer Peter Frenzel. Folding legs are compactly placed on its rear panel. In the event of a fall, they come out and unfold, and their spring structure prevents the phone from reaching the surface. A video demonstrating the new device has appeared on the network. In the "calm" state, the case looks ordinary, but at the moment of falling from its corners, built-in plates appear, as a result the smartphone falls on them, avoiding possible damage.
The new device is still presented as a prototype, but in the future its creator plans to organize a crowdfunding fundraising for the serial production of the invention.
