Watch General Electric Crush Stuff with 100,000 Pounds

I have to admit, it’s pretty fun watching stuff get crushed with 100,000 pounds of force. In this video, they also blast holes in materials with 140 mph winds using an air gun. Destruction is fun when it is all about making more durable products. Not so much when it happens to our stuff.

Last April, General Electric began releasing videos showing how their materials testing procedures affected everyday objects. This is a supercut. It’s amazing to see all kinds of objects get crushed – everything from a rubber duck to a baseball, to a ball of rubber bands and a die-cast car.

It’s all to make better and stronger products, but it is fascinating and fun to watch.
