20m drop test sends Nexus 7 to tablet heaven

Got a Nexus 7? You'd better cover up its eyes before clicking on through to this brutal video

Gadget drop tests are painful yet useful ways to gauge how much punishment your loyal bits of tech can take, but this Nexus 7 experiment was a little too brutal for even our internet-immunised minds.

Thrown from 20m high, it’s no surprise to see that Google’s 7 incher is busted wide open like a sausage that’s been over the flames a little too long.

Check out the video below then cuddle up to your own Nexus 7, assuring it that you’ll never be as careless, or as stupid.
