Yep. You read that title right. Honda have invented airbags for phones.
Dubbed Case N, the phone accessory acts like a protective shell and if the handset is dropped, the six airbags
An Apple patent already exists for something like this though. Apple earlier this year patented a design for a case that tracks how close a phone is to hitting the ground, using built-in accelerometers.
As the phone, and case, reaches the floor, gas-powered thrusters fire in the opposite direction to slow it down.
However, the inventions are just concepts and Honda (and Apple) haven’t shown interest in selling such a device.
