GE Smashing Everything From Teapots to Baseballs is somehow strangely mezmerizing.
According to GE’s twitter, “On April 23rd we opened our laboratory doors to show the world how we test our advanced materials. When we know how materials melt, shatter and bend, we can make machines that don’t.”
And oh how they melted, shattered, and bent everyday objects. Using thousands of pounds of pressure and micro erosion, they obliterated a plethora of everyday objects.
Their micro erosion test used 156 mph winds to blast holes through crayons, seashells, and watches.
Then comes the micro forging test which used 100,000 of pressure to crush sunglasses, toy trucks, baseballs, and even golf clubs.
While GE says this was all done in the name of science, I say it was all done in the name of awesome.
