Watch a Water Jet Cut Everyday Objects in Half
If you’re curious about the interior components of everyday objects—or just love seeing things destroyed with precision—you might want to head over to the YouTube channel Cut In Half. Like the popular hydraulic press videos we wrote about last month, the Cut In Half videos revel in random destruction and celebrate the strength of power tools.
But while the folks at the Hydraulic Press Channel completely flatten objects, Cut In Half uses a 60,000 psi (pounds per square inch) water jet to artfully dissect everything from athletic shoes to laptops. Some of the videos reveal cross-sections of mundane technologies whose inner workings we rarely think about. For instance, in one video, Cut In Half reveals the screws and coils inside a hair dryer, and in another, the powerful lenses within a pair of binoculars.
The channel was created in February and has posted 12 videos so far. Check out a few of our favorites below.
