New iPad meets its maker in violent encounter with HK53 Assault Rifle

New iPad meets its maker in violent encounter with HK53 Assault Rifle
The tech assassins from RatedRR are at it again, fighting for the right to bear arms and shoot gadgets, as provided in the Constitution. We guess one way to stand out in the 3 million-strong army of new iPad owners that emerged after the weekend is to take the tablet and pierce it with bullets from an HK53 Assault Rifle, and it's as good a way as any.

The new iPad held itself pretty well after the first few pieces went into its chassis, but its frame rigidity gave up at one point, and the 3.1 million pixels started begging for mercy.

What's interesting to see in those videos is how tough the glass on such tablets is - the bullets go through the screen leaving nice round holes, and the screen still doesn't crack from one end to the other, or shatter in small pieces. These ones it does when the iPad gets sneakily shot in the back through the aluminum casing, though. Oh, there's a little something for slow-mo aficionados as well.

Amazing video!!!! By the way guys, he gets paid by Youtube for doing this video, so stop saying it's a waste of money. He is making money by shooting an iPad!!! I would do it if I am famous on Youtube, too.

Well I mean the guy did buy that new iPad, so it's his to do what he like with it. I can't be mad or criticize him for doing what he wanted with the item he purchased. To each is own, he can do what he likes with his money. Unless he is ruining people's lives, then he would be wrong!

I wouldn't do that. I don't want to waste money on expensive things just so that I can make a statement by blowing it away with an HK... most epic needlessly-expensive target practice ever!
