Neodymium magnets are pretty powerful. Now you can watch two small blocks of the world’s strongest commercially available rare earth metal compounds slam together at high speed with an gold Apple Watch Edition in the middle. How will it fare? Probably not very well.
These magnets are super strong. So strong that a set larger than a few cubic centimeters will actually cause physical injuries if they are not handled properly.
They can be used for all kinds of applications, but this one is more fun. Crushing gadgets is always fun. Northern California based tech destroyer TechRax had a Gold Apple Watch Edition and two bricks of neodymium magnets. So it had to be done. There’s no way you can resist. These magnets have enough magnetic attraction to create about 650 pounds of crushing force.
Of course, the watch was pretty destroyed. The gold doesn’t look too bad, but the rest is messed up pretty thoroughly. When he put the watch in the box to connect the charger, it actually emitted an audio acknowledgement that it was reading a charge. That’s something at least. At least it survived to do that much, which is kind of impressive with that much force.
