While we’ve already gotten a look at a traditional teardown of the NVIDIA SHIELD before, there’s nothing quite like the one NVIDIA’s put together for themselves. The chipset vendor took it upon themselves to hire a few guys to blow up their NVIDIA Shield gaming handheld, the Android-based wonder that we reviewed not too long ago.
The deed was done starting with a hardcore drill, but that thing was only used to make a hole big enough to fit a small explosive inside. The crew lit the thing and captured the entire affair using a slow motion camera.
I was expecting a mess, but they were actually able to identify several of the tiny components that make up the SHIELD as they floated in mid-air. Not only is it destructive, but it’s educational — what more could you want?! Set aside a couple of minutes and watch the exciting video above.
