It's unlikely, but we suppose not impossible that you'd ever wind up dropping your iPhone 5 from 100,000 feet... and likely if you did, you'd have larger problems at the time, BUT who's to say that you never would?

G-Form, a company well known for delivering the most extreme electronics cases and athletic pads, launched an iPod touch in the company's XTREME iPhone 5 case into space and then let it free-fall back to Earth. Click below to play!

The company released a stunning video where the nearly naked iPod is shown hanging above the Earth in the blackness of space. In the video, the iPod is lifted to over 100,000 feet by a weather balloon which bursts at altitude, then releasing the iPod to free-fall to Earth where it crash lands on a rocky hillside in the Nevada countryside. Perhaps even more remarkable than the dramatic footage itself is the fact that the iPod survives the adventure, completely unharmed.

The company captured a portion of the ascent on the device itself which eventually shut down due to extremely cold atmospheric conditions.
