iPad Disassembled, Reassembled in Animation

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 16 comments

Welcome to new meets old in the world of technology and animation.

When the iPad launched early this month, repair firms were quick to get their teardown reports published. We featured one of the first ones in our story here. But to see a more animated, literally, teardown, we present to you TechRestore's stop-motion animation teardown, complete with zany sound effects.

    The hardware guy in me can't help but appreciate the clean elegance and simplicity in the design

    Love it, taking things apart and putting them back together always gives me self satisfaction... Scary when it doesn't work once put back together though haha!

    Great animation, though it needed a pull out of the end where the camera zooms up into outer space, past the planets, out of the solar system, shooting past galaxies, and finally it is revealed to be a gleam in Jobs' eye!

    Also, is it me, or did it seem like there was a lot of extra space in the iPad's shell?

    six of the last eleven articles have focused on Apple. Even if the news includes negative things about apple, this is kind of ridiculous. Can we get a LITTLE less focus on apple?

    Toms Hardware staff already posted and said they don't care what us readers think, apple articles get more hits.

    hmm. didn't know that. not really a good argument though. why not just become an openly apple news website? then they'll get even more hits.

    Not to be a jerk or anything here. But if Apple articles get more hits, doesn't that mean more readers are reading the Apple articles?
    Just a thought...

    But anyway, I too am sick of Apple new. Still a cool movie though.
