Midweek Timewaster – Wired’s Battle Damage

Wired runs a program on YouTube called Battle Damage where hosts Eric Beck and Justin Johnson drop items from about 20 feet up in front of ultra slow motion cameras on a ring track, capturing the explosive destruction.

For Star Wars Day, May 4, they dropped the Lego model of the Super Star Destroyer, The Executor. Poor Admiral Piett just keeps having bad days.

If the destruction of an $800 Lego playset isn’t enough destruction for you in one minute, check out their video on the console wars, where the team not only drops each generation of consoles beginning with the 16 bit duo of the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis. The extra step of testing functionality, after the fall, is conducted and you might be surprised by the winner.
