Someone finally had enough guts to shoot Google Glass with a submachine gun [VIDEO]

Shooting stuff is fun, as long as said “stuff” doesn’t include endangered animals or, you know, people. That’s why we always get excited about these videos of hardcore marksmen taking to technology with iron hammers of war.

Last time, we saw the NVIDIA SHIELD stand up tough against a hunting rifle. Today? Google Glass is in the crosshairs, with RatedRR putting it square in the sights of a vector submachine gun. The crew performed various drop tests to demonstrate the device’s natural rigidity, and it helped up quite well in that regard.

But nothing is a match for a gun. NOTHING. If for nothing else, just watch the video to see an incredibly awesome marksman do his thing against a pair of $1,500 smart glasses (because its price and lack of general availability means you won’t be seeing anyone else doing so much as a drop test).

    I have heard that, after shooting a Google glass, there is a boson transfer which will make your feet bullet proof. I would strongly advise the shooter to try that on both of his feet. This would make an awesome video.
