Destroying stuff is a lot of fun. There’s just something cathartic about destroying something for the heck of it. I settled for wrecking my Hot Wheels as a kid, but maybe that’s because I never knew what a water jet can do. It turns out it can destroy nearly anything, and it’s awesome to see.
The guys over at the Water Jet Channel just so happen to have one and like to cut through objects using an industrial grade 60,000 PSI water jet. It’s pretty insane and highly dangerous, but for some reason, it is mesmerizing.
The latest victim to fall prey to the water jet is an iPhone 7, and boy did they really take out the apple out of it.
They start by mechanically programming the machine to cut an object any way they desire. The team first programmed it to cut the Apple logo out of the iPhone. The stream of water looks harmless for a second until you see it knife through the iPhone like it was butter, leaving a perfectly symmetrical Apple logo in its wake.
When science and industrial tools meet, awesomeness ensues
To provide some context, the iPhone is IP67 rated, which means it can stand a depth of one meter for 30 minutes which equates to 16.15 psi. That number pales in comparison to the 60,000 psi the water jet delivers, thus making the iPhone destruction much more understandable.
The whole video is a lot of fun. The guys even use the water jet to open the box, doing away with the Lightning cable and wall wart in the process., The iPhone survived the initial unboxing only to get scissored up minutes later.
