G-Form Extreme Sleeve protects MacBook from 20-foot balcony drop

The folks at G-Form, makers of the popular G-Form iPad Extreme Sleeve, have created a version for laptops due to popular demand. Available for pre-order now, the Extreme Sleeve for Laptops comes in an pro-2285-0017.jpg11-inch size for $69.95 and a size that fits 13 and 15-inch laptops for $79.95. The Extreme Sleeve uses what G-Form calls RPT-Reactive Protection Technology, which is a combination of PORON® XRD™ material and proprietary G-Form design used to create the sleeve. It's water-resistant, soft, flexible, lightweight and changes its molecular structure on impact. Watch the video to see them drop a 13-inch MacBook off a balcony, unscathed. These guys are used to making knee and elbow pads for extreme sports, so for them protecting personal electronics is probably a piece of cake.
