If you judge the following shootout by the phrase “the bigger they are, the harder they fall”, the iPad Air shouldn’t fall hard at all, because it’s a feather weight device. This is an interesting initiative from Richard Ryan, who decided to take a sniper rifle to the iPad Air.
He filmed the shooting with a Google Glass and used a semi automatic sniper riffle Barret, a 50 caliber unit. Obviously, the 7.5 mm iPad Air didn’t make it alive and its unibody aluminum shell was riddled with bullet holes. I have to say that those bullets are quite huge. What’s next? Well, the usual cliches that revolve around each product launch.
I’m talking about the usual Will it blend episode, the usual Russian guy using a machine gun on this iPad, people running it over with a car and the standard piece of news saying “the iPad Air saved my life”, coming from a guy who was shot and the bullet stopped in his tablet.
