This is What Happens to an iPad After Exposure to High Intensity Flashlights, Lasers


So you’ve got a bunch of really, really powerful lasers sitting around and also some ridiculous flashlights and, oh, a new iPad, too. If you’re Lowell Niles you see the perfect recipe for destruction, which is exactly what happened when he subjected Apple’s newest tablet to a gauntlet of luminescent fury. Surprisingly, the lasers do little apparent damage to the device while the high intensity flashlights absolutely wreck it. Oh, and all those flames? Don’t worry; that’s just the iPad’s lithium-ion battery giving up the ghost.

If this video gets you just a little too excited, then you should probably know that you can buy the tools of destruction seen here over at Wicked Lasers. Just be careful.
