ZAGG invisibleSHIELD EXTREME Seems Impossible

Some time ago I wrote a favorable review of the ZAGG invisibleSHIELD (for now on called Zagg Invisible Shield, oiy product names these days). It did exactly what it promised, came with a first class warranty and didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Applying it to your device could prove a little difficult but with some practice I’ve become a total pro.

Now Zagg has a new product out and I’m not so sure about it…

Introducing the invisibleSHIELD® EXTREME, a patented award winning, protective film for gadgets. Delivering the same premium quality as the original invisibleSHIELD, this exceptionally tough, and virtually indestructible film features a new shock resistant layer that preserves touchscreen clarity and functions.

So now that we’ve all watched that video, let’s discuss. This simply cannot be possible, am I right? How can a  material that’s flexible and only 0.2mm thick possibly provide this much protection? This is better than the Gorilla Glass the iPhone already has.

I haven’t decided if I’ll be getting the iPhone 5, but if I do, I’ll be buying this new Invisible Shield. If it is even half as good as it promises, I might start using my phone sans case. And you can be sure I’ll review it here, though there’s no way I’ll attack any of my iPhones with a hammer to test this thing. Maybe I can find cheap, dead iPhone on eBay bash. That could be fun.

What do you think, could this even be possible? If it is, Otterbox should look out.
