TOKYO, JAPAN – We’ve all dropped our cell phone at one time or another. Wouldn’t it be cool if our phone could save itself? That’s what Honda is trying to do. They’re combining car technology with phone technology and came up with the Smartphone Case N. It’s a concept smartphone case with a built-in airbag. The bag would automatically deploy in mid-air when you drop your phone.

The product is still really big, which is why it’s just a concept and not something you can actually buy in stores.
