Honda makes smartphone case with an emergency airbag

Are you the clumsy type of person who just keeps on dropping and breaking smartphones? Then this might be the kind of case you’re destined for – the Smartphone Case N. A Honda-made smartphone case that comes equipped with emergency airbags.

Honda Case N

The Case N looks like a contraption designed to be used by the guys at NASA. The way it works is pretty simple, in case you drop your phone the sensors will activate the airbags and deploy them even before it hits the ground. It appears to be very effective but extremely bulky and ugly. Watch the demo video below:


Judging from the way Honda presented the Case N (and the lack of subtitles), it’s a little bit hard to think that the Japanese automotive company is serious about this product. It’s a cool concept (plausible, yes) but I don’t think we’ll see it mass produced anytime soon.

    The blue board is an arduino board, the red board looks like an accelerometer, not sure about the 3rd board. Could be the board that interfaces with the co2 pump.

    its very easy to make a cellphone body that can survive a fall fall from a reasonable height. Aluminum or strong plastics will do. Its very easy to make a screen that wont crack with stuff like Polycarbonates

    it is very difficult to make a scratchproof glass screen that wont break when the phone falls. It is glass after all. And plastic screens scratch easily. There are videos of drop tests for the samsung S4 and the new iphone that prove it.

    If they can make gorilla glass 5 strong enough to take a fall from waist height without shattering then you dont need an airbag

    hmmm about sa sliping of phone sa bulsa…sadya siguro na tanggalin ng mga phone makers ang lanyard eye, para madaling masira mga phone if nahulog at mapabili or ipa-repair natin…

    kasi dati, almost all may lanyard eye, ngayon, parang wala na eh. Sana ibalik nila para iwas dukot or hulog ang phone.

      Would you really hang today’s phones on your neck? It’s pretty awkward seeing a person having a gigantic piece of slab hanging just above their stomachs.
