Tickle Me Elmo Gets Roasted by a Jet Engine: Melt Me Elmo

Can 45 Layers of Bulletproof Glass Save You from an RPG?

Can 45 Layers of Bulletproof Glass Save You from an RPG?
Bulletproof glass is an awesome invention; it protects VIPs all around the world from being killed by bad guys looking to do them harm. While that glass does a fantastic job of protecting from bullets, it’s clearly no match for an rocket-propelled grenade.

Watch Two Powerful Rare-Earth Magnets Crush Things

Watch Two Powerful Rare-Earth Magnets Crush Things
We humans like to see stuff get destroyed. I’m not proud of it, but I do find things like this enjoyable. There’s nothing quite like wanton destruction, especially when stuff get killed between two giant rare-earth magnets.

Of Course an Apple Watch Will Blend

Of Course an Apple Watch Will Blend
You can probably guess that I am a serious gadget hound. I like gadgets even if many of them are of questionable use. It’s sort of like a Dungeon Master collecting every die he can lay hands on just in case they ever need to roll a 1-in-50 chance of a Paladin getting demonic syphilis.

Watch a Rubik’s Cube Burn Thanks to a Red Hot Nickel Ball

Watch a Rubik’s Cube Burn Thanks to a Red Hot Nickel Ball
I’m not sure what it is with the human fascination of watching things be destroyed, but I also enjoy it. I especially enjoyed watching this Rubik’s Cube melt and burn when a red hot nickel ball was placed on top.

Watch General Electric Crush Stuff with 100,000 Pounds

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.

This Chair Will Self-Destruct After Eight Uses
Have you ever sat on a chair that seemingly looked sturdy, but eventually gave way under your butt? I have, and let me tell you, while it sounds funny, it’s extremely painful (and embarrassing!) Unfortunately, we only have the chair to blame… or don’t we?

iPhone 5 Abused with Lasers and Crazy Flashlight

iPhone 5 Abused with Lasers and Crazy Flashlight
Wicked Lasers is a company that makes a lot of crazy bright laser pointers. In fact, some of these things you shouldn’t even call laser “pointers” because they can actually set things on fire and pop balloons – they’re more like laser weapons. 

High-Voltage Plasma TV Burnout Is Spectactular, Dangerous

High-Voltage Plasma TV Burnout Is Spectactular, Dangerous
After watching countless “will it blend?” videos, I was actually getting pretty burnt out on viewing the destruction of countless innocent gadgets. Maybe it was because of the monotony of watching stuff getting chopped up in a blender.

Navy Records 32-Megajoule Railgun Firing on Video

Navy Records 32-Megajoule Railgun Firing on Video
You know, if I heard some gun maker talking about how they were working on railguns, I would probably laugh and move on about my business. When the U.S. military tells you it’s working on something as far-fetched as a railgun, it’s hard to ignore it, because the military and its various research arms, and its contractors have a long history of taking the improbable and bringing it to fruition.

Drive A Tank Lets You Drive Real Tanks, Crush Real Cars

Drive A Tank Lets You Drive Real Tanks, Crush Real Cars
This year was a particularly tough one for me. I had a lot of things I had to hurdle through, from personal matters to work-related stuff. But now that it’s nearing the end of the year, I’d like to say that 2011 had it’s good times despite all the bad.

Protect Your Hard Drive Secrets With a Simple Sticker
While I don’t think that hackers need any info on how to destroy their data in case of an FBI raid, other people might need a helping hand. Here’s the easiest way to destroy your hard drive, in case of an emergency.

Beautiful Xbox 360 Explosions: Cool but Why?

Beautiful Xbox 360 Explosions: Cool but Why?
While I do see the photographic beauty in these exploding Xbox 360 consoles, just like the Apple products that were shot, I wonder if his is just a colossal waste. Admittedly, it makes a bold statement.

Google Destroys Its Own Chrome Notebooks – to Prove a Point
So if you’ve been paying attention at all to the news this week, Google revealed their first Chrome-based notebook computer. It’s the first mainstream PC to shy away from local application and document storage – moving as much as possible into the cloud.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.
Ok, this is my kind of contest. The whole point of Sparkfun Electronics’ Anitmov competition is to create robots which are supposed to complete a trivial task in a highly inefficient way, in the course, destroying themselves.

The Face of Washing Machine Destruction

The Face of Washing Machine Destruction
Remember that little clip we posted the other day, showing off the cataclysmic destruction left in the wake of throwing bricks in a washing machine? Well I can officially tell you that I like this new version better.
