    Here's a bit of Android entertainment for your viewing pleasure this morning. We've seen sniper rifle vs. smartphone destruction videos before, but today's demonstration features the HTC One M8 getting shredded by a super high-tech rifle that looks (and acts) like something out the Halo video game series. The rifle is called the Tracking Point XS1: Smart Rifle and it really lives up to its name.

    One's really brutal is that before the gorgeous phone gets annihilated by the sniper rifle, it gets dropped and dunked just for that extra bit of cringeworthy tech-torture. Of course, the guys at RatedRR are using their usual high-tech, high-speed cameras so we get to see all the action in ultra-slo-mo. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the tip, swc2001!

    It's like the guy that uses the blender to obliterate every new phone that comes out.... Entertaining, (I guess) but pointless. I suppose if you're bored and have 5-7 hundred dollars to throw away every couple of weeks.... :screwy:
