Well, I guess you won't know unless you try it. And ZooGue tried it. They froze an iPad inside a block of ice to see if it would still work. And it did. As far as I can tell, the video is unrelated to the iPad cases that ZooGue makes, but is simply meant to draw attention to their offer of free cases. You only pay shipping. I do have one of their folio cases and like it a lot.
