General Electric Shows Off Advanced Materials Tests by Destroying a Variety of Everyday Objects

General Electric (GE) is currently running their #SpringBreakIt promotional campaign where they’re showing off exactly how they test advanced materials by “testing” common objects like a baseball and a tea pot. The three sets of videos are sorted by “Crush It,” “Smash It,” and “Blast It.” The first is a metal forging test, the second a drop test, and the third is an erosion test. All the videos in the #SprintBreakIt campaign — currently numbering 47 total — are available via GE’s YouTube page.
