This gadget hasn’t hit the shelves yet but it’s already getting great reviews. Philip Frenzel, a student at Aalen University in Germany, designed ADCASE, a genius phone case that deploys an airbag as soon as you drop your device. The invention has already won Frenzel the top award from the German Society for Mechatronics, which considered projects from students all over the country.

At first, Frenzel created an activation mechanism with sensors that detect when the phone is in free fall. But what does it activate? He initially thought of designing an actual airbag on the phone, that and a foam-based alternative, however these designs didn’t prove to be practical. Eventually, instead of something soft, Frenzel settled on something firm. Springs.

So far the device is only compatible with iPhones, but that may change in the future. To fund the project, the student plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign in July.
