Xperia Play microwaved on video

Xperia Play microwaved on video
There is no need to do anything crazy nowadays. The minute you think about something really stupid daring and Google it, someone has already done it and posted a video on YouTube detailing the experience.

So if you ever had the itch to throw your phone in the microwave and slowly cook it until its guts boil and the thing explodes into pieces - no need for that now. The professional microwave operators from dOvetastic Microwave Theater slipped a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, of all things, in a microwave oven, and cranked up those molecule-boiling waves.

The results after ten minutes of microwaving or so, are a completely melted and destroyed handset, and a totally messed up microwave unit, as you can easily imagine. Watch the carnage in the video below - the guy is even selling the framed remains on eBay for $888, so you have four more days to pony up and get them.

i would still prefer the xperia play over a quad core phone cause it fulfills my needs. And it will be getting ice cream sandwich.

Wow... if Wierd Al had made the movie "UHF" this year, this could have been one of the vignettes featured on U62... they could call it "Malik's Microwave Adventures", and from there I can already hear the rest of the conversation... Bob: "George, where... where did you find this guy?" George: "Me? I thought you hired him." lol...

Such destructive idiots, if I had a kid who pulled this crap, they'd be using feature phones until they were 18. I paid $300 for my RAZR, got it right when it came out, and I take care of it LIKE AN ADULT! I personally believe an electronic device that is properly functioning and current enough to be used efficiently should only be destroyed on purpose for testing cases or other protective gear. I see kids suffering, bright kids, smart as hell, with no high tech toys to play with, and learn from as I did growing up. and here this idiot is, microwaving one. He should make a video of him sticking his head in the wave next and COOKING IT CAUSE APPARENTLY IT DOESN'T WORK EITHER!!! Sorry, i get nippy when people destroy good electronics.....
