iPad Air Fails the Drop Test & Doesn’t Fair Too Well Against Bullets (video)
The following video puts the iPad Air through a number of torture tests starting with the most basic: a drop test.
It turns out that the iPad Air is surprisingly fragile; not only did the screen break when the tablet was dropped on concrete, it also broke when dropped on dirt. That should not have been enough to kill this tablet.
And after TA thoroughly killed the iPad Air, that’s when the fun began. First they peppered it with an airsoft gun and then they demonstrated that the tablet wasn’t bullet proof.
They eventually manage to shoot it enough times that it explodes. Well, it doesn’t technically explode but the screen, shell, and components head in different directions at high speed. That is close enough to exploding to suit me. It was pretty cool.
