Reports regarding possible external and internal specs of the upcoming iPhone 7 are all around the internet. Alongside that there are some cool and crazy design concepts circulating the internet, such as the iPhone 7 Parachute System. These concepts sometimes seem too good to be true, or too crazy and less likely to be implemented. However, these out of the box concepts show us what cool features a phone can sport.
Latest of iPhone 7 Concept – Parachute System For Drop Protection
If you’ve seen a drop test video of iPhone 6s, you might know that its not too durable, and isn’t good at preventing damages when dropped. It has failed terribly in comparison to phones like Samsung S6 Edge, which despite its vulnerable looking design turns out to be quite durable.
As it can be seen in the video, it’s clear that the concept designer didn’t pay any attention to redesigning the basic features of the phone. This concept is made particularly for the parachute system feature, rather than to show a completely new look of the next generation Apple phone. The design and size of the phone remains same. All that’s changed is internally.
According to the designer’s concept, iPhone’s orientation, speed and proximity sensor can work together to detect when the phone is about to hit an object. These built-in features can then trigger an internal alarm when the phone is just about to hit the floor, and can instantly signal the CO2 tank – installed internally in the phone – to operate.
Upon receiving alert from the sensors, the c02 tank can release it’s gas to nozzles located on all four sides of the phone. Which would result in controlling the phone from hitting the floor with impact, minimizing speed of the phone, and causing it to gently stop rather than hitting hard onto the floor. After the CO2 tank is emptied, it can be then filled again through a slot located at the bottom of the phone. To test this feature would be interesting for sure. However the chances of this iPhone 7 Parachute System being implemented are very slim. Anyhow check out the clip and share your views on it.
