Raspberry Pi CRAZY Drop Test

Sun Jan 31, 2016 4:25 pm

NOTE: No working Pis were harmed in filming of this video :p

https://youtu.be/Xm3tiEfaNas

In this video I, drop a dead Raspberry Pi from various heights and see how much damage it sustains.

The Results:

1) 6ft: No damage
2) 6ft. Strong throw: Bumped Ethernet Port
3) 2nd Floor (25ft app.): A bit more damage to the Ethernet port and very slightly bent GPIO pins.
4) Terrace (55ft app): Considerable damage to the Ethernet and USB ports and Two of the GPIO pins bent Considerably.
Conclusion: IT STILL WORKS!!!
