    While it's incredibly painful for those who wish to own an iPad Air, and even those who do. YouTube channel RatedRR has posted a video of an iPad Air getting tortured by an airsoft MP7 BB gun. The folks over at the channel do a great job with video work, shooting the iPad (pun intended) with an incredibly high FPS video camera.

    This allowed the video to be feature in slow-mo with plenty of cool shots of BBs flying off the iPad Air display. RatedRR also did a great job adding super cool music to the background as we watch our precious Apple product massacred by a toy gun. Surprisingly, the iPad Air's glass display isn't as strong as we would have thought it to be, in some slow motion shots you can really see shards of glass flying off the device. Check out the video above, we promise, it's insanely cool!

    And the point in doing that is what other than destroying an expensive device?

    They're probably handsomely compensated in ad revenue as lots of people watch this ;)
    Still quite a waste.

    I couldn't care less for upgrading I am good with my iPad 2 since it is just a gaming console to me.

    I don't understand the mentality of people that do this , if they want to show slow motion then destroy something cheaper , what are they trying to prove ? The exact same result would happen regardless of the brand of device so why the hatred of apple ? I just think this kind of destruction regardless of so-mo is just plain thick ! . There's no valid reason why you'd even think a tablet would even survive this kind of subjected abuse so I just think its really dumb and sad to resort to this kind of destruction just to be popular . There are better and more creative ways of using slo-mo photography , this is just childish idiocy .

    Agreed, this shouldn't be allowed until 6 months after a device is released. I have a friend who couldn't get one right away because of supply limits in her area (she also has no way to pay for online purchases). That device could have gone to someone who would actually use it for its intended purpose.

    The money came from their youtube accounts. If I had one I could do that cause I love pointless destruction.

    So why deprive someone of a device that's in short demand .

    They should do better things with their time .

    Maybe destroy Facebook , at least there's a purpose to that ...!

    It is a waste...but it is a really cool video, too. :)

    BTW, Apple is happy to sell anyone with the money an iPad. No one is being deprived.

    Well not Facebook! I need it to communicate with my Innocent and unspoiled-by-the-internet friends and family.

    I understand, but the internet is required for Facebook. ;)

    Some of us just never got the Facebook or social media thing. I'm one of them. Our loss I suppose since we are the minority.

    i too do not get FACEBOOK, far to viral.

    way to powerful a tool for those who like to 'troll'. puts me in mind of CB radio, infected by people who had nothing of real value to say.
