Remember General Electric’s incredible cadre of machines that exist solely to destroy things? Well, they have been using them to destroy things like teapots and baseballs and watches just for fun — and the resulting videos are amazing.
It may be all for publicity, but these #SpringBreakIt videos are, hashtag aside, pretty rad. Here are some of our favourites cherry picked from the masses, but if this isn’t enough destruction for you, check out GE’s #SpringBreakIt site for the full chaotic set.
The objects are alternately smashed with 226kg of force, crushed under 45,000kg of pressure and extreme heat, or blasted with grit. [General Electric]
