Destroy your own Chrome OS Notebook!

Google made nerds around the world cringe when they destroyed 25 new CR-48 Chrome OS Notebooks while filming this video to prove the benefits of cloud-based computing. After all, if all of your data is online, it doesn't matter if your internet terminal is destroyed. Just fire up another one, sign in with your account, and everything is just as you left it!

Well now you can put your own CR-48 through its paces, even if you haven't gotten one in the mail yet. The Google Chrome OS Demolition Lab has just opened up. It's basically an interactive version of the video, showing various demolitions as you ask the lab tech to carry them out. They seem to be taking suggestions though, so if you have a particularly violent end in mind for a CR-48, ask the techie and they might just do it!

  1. I got to see the demonstration video for the Chrome OS and the lab techs destroying them. I could have cried it if wasn't so damn funny. The fact that they have an interactive version now is just awesome :)
