VIDEO: Wicked Lasers Burn Through the New iPad

By now, you've probably grown sick and tired of hearing about the 'hot' new iPad, and we don't blame you. Whether you believe the new temperatures are high enough to cause any problems or not, you probably don't have to worry about your iPad bursting into flames. Unless of course you're this guy who decides to throw a few of Wicked Laser's products at his brand new iPad (3rd gen).

    The video is cool, but I hope the guy has really lots of money to burn a U$600 gadget...

    Actually, this is the cheapest way to advertise
    "a combo of four Wicked Laser products for his new iPad's destruction: the Spyder III, S3 Arctic, S3 Krypton and the Torch Flashlight."

    Burning 600$ gets a lot more in return.

    I reckon he used some pyro at around 1:25 because the laser on its own can't really do that unless its in the 10+ watts.

    I reckon he didn't as the lasers probably penetrated the lithium ion battery at that moment (if i had to guess).

    I don't know how you can burn such a valuable, revolutionary, magical device. This is just irresponsible. My family could all use back-up iPads.

    The demonstration with the flashlights was misleading:
    The waste heat from the halogen lamps in the flashlights caused the
    damage, not the energy in the light from the flashlights.
