Speck today announced the launch of a new Presidio2 line of cases, which Speck says are the most protective, durable, and slimmest dual-layer cases that it has ever created.

The Presidio2 cases use new "Cloud Armor" technology, which involves creating individual air capsules along the perimeter of the case. On impact, the air capsules flex and suspend the device on a cushion of air, similar to an airbag.

According to Speck, all of the cases will the able to withstand drops of up to 13 feet, and each case will also offer antimicrobial protection to prevent stain and odor causing bacteria.

When it launches in the spring of 2020, the Presidio 2 line will include the Presidio2 Armor Cloud, Presidio2 Grip, and Presidio2 Pro cases. More information is available on the Speck website.

I came here looking for a CO2 powered bubble that would trigger on a drop and would inflate mere milliseconds before ground impact... needless to say that I'm disappointed.
Agreed. I clicked on the article to read about something innovative and instead found a case with built in bubble wrap.

Such a let down.

Yeah such a let down.
You could say the headline is over inflating the technology.


This is more like Nike Air shoes. It doesn’t deploy like an airbag.

Call it a Static Airbag Technology

sounds cool

I don't think so, as it spreads out the impact force over a greater surface area so that each cubic inch receives less force than one singular impact point.
That assumes the surface is uniformly flat. Most aren't, and the surfaces I mentioned definitely are not. You're right though that the taptic engine couldn't do what Joseph desired. We're all just messin' around with hypotheticals.

I've been waiting for Apple to have fall detection and automatically use the vibration motor and rotate the device to land flat.
