You know how automobile airbags work – on impact, the bags are deployed to protect the passengers from hurt. Same here. Japanese automobile giants, Honda, have invented a smartphone case with airbags built-in. So if you have one of these cases, you can stop worrying about cracked screens and other damages when your phone takes a dive for the tiled or concrete floor.
When the phone falls, six airbags are deployed. Pufff! Easy does it. Unfortunately, the case is just a concept design and Honda says they have no plans to manufacture it. Bummer. Hopefully, that won’t stop some other manufacturers from coming up with similar solutions.
