It's one of those moments in life that seems to happen in slow motion. But that doesn't mean you can do anything to stop it.
You're in the kitchen, lovingly preparing a delicious meal. You're diligently following the recipe, which is handily displayed on your tablet computer. You've propped this up against the kitchen scales, or a bottle of olive oil, or something else that works just as we'll as a temporary stand.
And then the stars align. Karma comes back to haunt you for some past deed. Or whatever.
Something happens and you knock your saucepan. It wobbles on the stove and all you can do is watch, in aforementioned slow motion, as a liberal dollop of your fresh pasta sauce arcs across the kitchen and lands firmly on your prized touchscreen monolith. Disaster.
If only there were a tablet designed for this harsh environment.
