Tech Industry: ioSafe Rugged Portable Demo

2:26 /

During a demo, ioSafe let its Rugged Portable external hard drive to take about ten rounds of shotgun to prove just how rugged the drive is. The drive survived the test. Here's the video of the first shot. After this it was shot at many times more, then slammed and crushed and yet at the end, the data stored inside was still intact. The drive was actually still working and fully functional after the ordeal.

-Good? -Good to go. -We're gonna take one shot and then we're gonna bring it back and check for data and then we're gonna really try and kill it. Let's do it live but everyone's shooting. -Okay. This is like-- -Okay. -Okay, get the safety. -Thirteenth place. So...let's see. Yeah, pretty good shot. Here, you can see some of the aluminum has been distorted. Oh, it's... The blue light is always a good sign. And our driver popped up over here on the right. So we'll double click on that drive, sorry, the window slid over. Outside the window. And all I do is [unk] Try to set up. That went pretty well. And we're gonna try and, I guess it survived this far, let's try to really kill it, so, each of you get a chance to shoot it and, you know, we haven't done a lot of testing with multiple shotgun shots one after another after another so I'm crossing my fingers, too, that everything's gonna work out right but let's do it.
