It's made of "Flubber"
And it bounces when it hits the floor...right back into your hand!

May bounce back, but likely with a cracked screen.

I mean, I'm all for more sturdy devices. I love the Casio waterproof and shock and dust proof devices... too bad they run Android. But somehow this doesn't seem like an attempt to make a device more sturdy.

I really don't know what this flexibility is for. And how can you patent a material? Or a feature like flexibility anyway? Am I missing something?

Apple can patent anything. Known as having money.
Draw your own conclusions.

Yes! It's so you can sit on it and it won't bend!
