As far as crazy and cruel things you can do to an iPhone goes, this video is not the wackiest; however, it still pushes the envelope on kooky ideas! These guys decided to take a brand new iPhone 6S and do burnouts on it with a Ducati pocket-racer motorcycle. They crafted a handy little device to make sure the iPhone 6S would remain stationary, and then let rip with the burnouts on top of its display.
Unsurprisingly, a large streak of rubber "tread-marks" are left across its screen. Despite that, the phone appeared to be mostly functional afterwards. The heat of the burnout obviously did damage to the display making some parts of it unusable, but that is what you would expect. This begs the question: Why would you wreck a perfectly good iPhone 6S to test something no one would ever do to their phone, and come up with a result you already know?
Obviously, the only answer is simply for the pure entertainment value. What do you folks think of this tech-sadistic practice? Overly cruel or harmless fun?
The video can be viewed in the thread below.
