Happy Friday. Care to join us for a 1,000 foot free fall? In the video above, you’ll find wingsuit and base jumpers Brett Kistler, Jamie Flynn and Connery flying over Switzerland. We love wingsuit videos, but here’s why this one is awesome: the guys drop an iPhone from 1,000 feet (which is recording the entire time) and it survives. It was apparently saved thanks to one of G-Form’s protective iPhone cases, which are capable of absorbing 94-percent of impact force.

We’re not going to bore you with the rest of the marketing talk about the case because, as the video above proves, it apparently works pretty well. The company said similar cases will soon be available for the Samsung Galaxy S III.
