Tablet with airbags

Durable cases for drop-proofing your tablet aren't new. But Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has come up with an alternative design that may be clever or crazy -- or a little of both. In February 2010, Bezos reportedly applied for a patent for an airbag system for mobile devices. The airbags, of course, are designed to cushion the impact of the inevitable tablet plunge to the pavement. A ruggedized case may provide similar protection, but wouldn't it be cool to see airbags deploy on tumbling tablet? No word yet as to whether Bezos's alleged airbag system will leave the drawing board.
