Here’s What We’re Up To: More Reliability Testing!
There are 33 days to the end of summer and we’re thriving under the pressure. There are thousands of things that go into product development that you’d never imagine are required. And they take up a lot of our time.
One of those industry standards for tech products is the ball drop test. This is a test common for flat glass and low strength material (sunglasses, lenses, etc.). We know you are extremely coordinated and have no flaws, but we prepare for the worst here. We replicate the end users dropping everyday-use common objects onto Phorm. This would include your keys, water bottles, phones, whatever a small child may drop on it…
We have concluded the test with some positive results:
Our Phorm morphing panel on the iPad lasted until a ball drop height of 60”, a bare iPad mini only lasted to a ball drop height of 30”. Even though you can double the height of which things drop, we know you’ll be extra gentle with Phorm so it will handle daily on-the-go writing.
Steel Ball: 130g
Drop Height 20 cm increments
4x on center of display
1x on each corner of display
PASS on all 8 impacts.
We’ve dropped the ball. In a good way! (Sorry we had to)
