We have seen an iPad tossed out of a plane at 500 feet. We’ve seen an iPad dropped out of a plane flying 1,300 feet above ground. We’ve seen bowling balls dropped on top of Apple’s tablet. Today is a first though as it’s the first time that we have seen an iPad dropped into molten lava. The stunt, performed by the folks at ZooGue , takes place on the islands of Hawaii.
Oddly enough, the video does not feature any products from ZooGue.
The iPad 2, when close to the lava, sends off a temperature warning.
And then, when the device is dropped directly into said lava, it bursts into flames and is destroyed.
While I don’t agree with that they did here, I had a hard time turning away. Still, I hope this is the first and last time that we see a gadget senselessly destroyed for the sake of marketing.
Somehow though, I don’t think it will be.
