OtterBox Reflex series smartphone cases built to take one for the team

Inspired by the crumple zone of a car, OtterBox’s new Reflex series iPhone 4 and BlackBerry Curve cases use polycarbonate and TPE rubber and air to keep your phone safe, even in (or falling from) the hands of the worst of butterfingers.

The cases create an air bumper around the phone, allowing the outer layer of rubber to take the impact of drops before springing back into place to take another hit. And it doesn’t take up as much room as you would think from its job description: It adds about 1/8″ on all sides and the back, and weighs about 22 grams, or 1/5 the weight of the iPhone 4.

They aren’t giving an exact release date, but the csae will be available “soon” on their website for $45. We’ll be sure to drop a couple iPhone 4s once this one comes in.
