    No phones / displays were harmed during these tests. We took one of the broken screens off the tiny_display_wall @shackspace.

    Being nailed to the wall these displays are already somewhat broken - but served us well enough for this quick test.

    These tiny quadcopters weigh about 20g in total and unfortunately don't provide enough lift to carry a smartphone - but you get the idea.

    putting 8 motors (octacopter) on a frame made from straws should give enoug lift for about 15g payload. the maiden flight:
    backside of an old iphone that was lying around.

    It will for sure break the fall but it won't fly. (20g)

    Maybe this is not the rout to go - but how could would it be if you could just place your phone in mid air ...

    idea 5 - quadcopter-style

    how cool would it be if you could just leave it in mid-air and it would just hover and then gracefully glide to a soft landing. Of course the props would need to be incorporated into the smartphone.

    and yes ... after less than a week ... oops I did it again ... didn't even notice when/how it happened

    idea 4 - more low tech - compressed micro spring sticks

    these just pop out (get released mechanically) when needed.

    sth. like this? even a lot shorter.
