One of the cooler LEGO Technic kits out there is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s simply stunning. But that didn’t stop the guys from c’t Magazine from taking theirs and smashing it into a wall, with the help of the German automotive safety group ADAC and their crash test facility.
THE BEST Destruction
When The Slow Mo Guys team up with Blue Man Group, you know they’re going to make a mess of epic proportions. That’s exactly what they did in this extended length video, as they used bowling balls to wreak as much havoc as possible in front of a high-speed camera.
If you’ve ever gotten a paper cut, you know how sharp the edge of a sheet of the stuff can actually be. The Q shows us how rapidly spinning a disc of paper on an angle grinder can turn it into a circular saw. Needless to say, keep all fingers and toes away from this thing.
The Slow Mo Guys filmed air pistol pellets being shot through deodorant sticks. The projectile is so fast, even viewing it at 120,000fps isn’t that satisfying. But at least we found out that you can both be invincible at airsoft and smell good with just one thick vest.
The guys from the Hydraulic Press Channel took a momentary break from crushing stuff with their press, and dropped by Lillbacka Powerco to play with their Finn-Power crimping machine, which is capable of crushing small objects from all sides with 320 tons of force.
(PG-13: Language) While it’s fun to watch the deadly hydraulic press smush soft items, it’s far more satisfying to see it take on things that you’d think would be indestructible – like this metal vice. But it makes quick work of this and a few other random items in their latest video.
The Slow-Mo Guys ignore all the warning labels on a bunch of small lithium batteries, exposing them to fire, and turning them into tiny rocket ships and bombs in front of their Phantom high-speed camera. We can only imagine how nasty large batteries would be if they blew up.
Giaco Whatever’s razor-edged spinning top is already deadly enough – now he’s taken aim at a variety of new objects to shred – from making some egg salad, to getting toothpaste out of the tube, to blowing up butane-filled lighters. In other news, Barbie got a new hairstyle.
We’ve seen tons of videos of stuff destroyed inside of microwaves, but the footage is shot through the mesh door, and hard to see. Steve Mould figured out a way to record inside his oven without damaging the camera, providing a detailed look at what happens inside.
We thought playing with a fidget spinner at 99,999+ RPM was dangerous, but Giaco Whatever’s spinning top that’s been modded with razor blades seems like a much worse idea. Watch as it makes quick work of hot dogs, cans, balloons, fruit, and thankfully no fingers.
We’ve seen the strange properties of these hardened glass drops before. Now see how one handles the deadly hydraulic press. It’s so strong that it damages the press tools before violently exploding. Hopefully these guys can buy a better high-speed camera soon.
