SlickWraps Protects your iPad From Everything, Even Firecrackers

In honor of the 4th of July, we figured it was appropriate to show off this promo video by SlickWraps. The iPad wrap manufacturers have gone through unusual lengths to show off their products before, but this one takes the cake.

TUAW‘s Erica Sadun passes on this viral clip of a wild demonstration of SlickWraps’ durability. I’ll give you a hint, it involves an iPad, a SlickWrap and a bunch of explosions…

I remember growing up and being told not to light firecrackers in the driveway, as doing so would cause unsightly burn marks in the pavement. Though not allowed on concrete, apparently fireworks are ok on iPads. At least when the iPad is covered up with a SlickWrap:


The company set off 300 black cats on top of a SlickWrapped iPad. Although the firecrackers left burn marks on the product, the iPad escaped mark free. This bodes well for all of those professional pyrotechnicians out there who are looking for a solid way to protect their tablets.

Thoughts? Where does this rank on your scale of awesomeness?
