Our Digital Demolition Videos: Burn, Hard Drive, Burn

Watch our Digital Demolition video team in action as they torture ruggedized products from Dell, Panasonic, and other companies. In our first demolition video, we take several laptops and bury them, spray them with a garden hose, and drop them. Guess what the results are?

And that's nothing compared to the fire cannon test (more powerful than a flame thrower), where we attempt to melt an external hard drive. Talk about being all fired up! Thanks to our good friends at The Crucible fire arts center in Oakland, CA for their assistance.
