Don’t Shoot an iPhone 5 with Lasers [Video]

Oct 4, 2012 - 16 Comments

iPhone 5 lasers

The iPhone 5 may be a lot tougher than it’s predecessor, but apparently it’s no match for lasers. For some reason or another someone decided to shoot a bunch of lasers at an iPhone 5 to see how it would hold up, and what do you know, it ends up destroying the iPhone. Entirely pointless, but at least they filmed the entire thing and you can watch it embedded below.

So while you should feel confident that dropping the device isn’t going to do much damage other than a simple nick or ding, whatever you do, just don’t shoot laser beams at your iPhone 5 if you want it to last.
