I really can't imagine that a rational, clear-thinking individual would ever decide to use his or her iPhone as a hockey puck, but I'm certainly glad that there is a protective case that would keep the gadget safe in such a scenario.
The case is made by a company called G-Form and comes in two designs — dubbed the Extreme Grid and the X-Protect — so that your iPhone can look stylish while being hit, thrown around or otherwise abused. Either case design will set you back $40 and can be ordered through the G-Form website now (though it won't ship until the end of February).
If you want to see just how much abuse the case can supposedly take, check out the demonstration video below. In it you'll see an iPhone encased in a G-Form case get used as a hockey puck. (Spoiler: It survives the 82 mph slapshot.)
