Apple devices will fall like a cat with the new patent and technology

by Cagan EGE2014/12/21

Apple’s new patent  will help consumers protect their Apple products when fell on floor.

This will be done using new technology that can react to drops and shift the center of gravity before it hits the ground and prevent sensitive components from damage .

How Apple will change the center of gravity of units is less evident, but the idea would be to ensure that the device always lands on the back thus the display does not break. A number of advanced features and use of the many built-in sensors will help to calculate the fall and correct for it before the device hits eg. a hard surface.

The new patent called “Protective Mechanism for an electronic device” and has just been approved and published by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
