A German engineering student made a new innovative mobile case which is equipped with ‘mobile airbags’. It protects dropped phones from getting smashed and damaged. The creative mastermind behind this creation is Philip Frenzel who is a student at Aalen University in Germany. The technology deploys small legs to protect it from damage by sensing when a phone is in a free fall.

The phone case looks ordinary with shock-absorbers in the four corners and they lie flat inside the case in normal situations. Many of the smartphone users are not happy with the bulky protective cases and Philip Frenzel has invented this case after he smashed the display of a brand new smartphone.

After the fall, the dampers can be folded back manually and are reusable.

The sensors in the case can detect the free fall and a metal spring is integrated to unfold during the fall. Philip Frenzel won an award from the German Mechatronics Society for this invention. The case is called “AD Case” where AD stands for “active damping”.

Frenzel expects to launch the device on Kickstarter this month and in order to launch his “AD Case” as a product, Frenzel founded a startup together with Peter Mayer, a graduate in economics from Aalen University. According to the report this invention has already been registered for a patent.

The gadget is a breakthrough among smartphone users and the team came up with a more streamlined and refined model. The team offers an interesting solution to the problem of how to stop damage to phones when they fall.
