Vertu Ascent Motorsport, Run Over Five Times, Survives


By David Ponce

The Vertu Ascent Motorsport Edition is like no other. It costs both your arms, and asks for your right eye as collateral. It is made with petroleum-resistant automotive leather inlaid with carbon fiber and Liquidmetal, an alloy that is stronger than aerospace grade titanium. Matter of fact, it’s so strong, the company claimed the phone could be run over by the very car that inspired its design: an F1 Porsche.

Well, the NYT called the company’s bluff and ran over it with a Porsche Boxter.

Five times.

And the phone survived without a scratch.

    Impressive, but what we really need (here at work) is one that will survive a drop into the toilet.
