Engineer Uses HTC One X Display as a Hammer and Drives Actual Nails [Video]

Besides serving as a phone and a mobile computing device, have you ever wondered what other purposes the HTC One Xcould serve a user? How about a hammer for those annoying times you may want to drive a nail into some wood and you just so happened to be without and actual hammer? Well sure, this HTC engineer wants to show you that that is completely plausible. Not recommended, but plausible.

As you will see in the video below, this gentleman creates his own form of scratch-drop-crash test and uses the One X’s display as a hammer head. I guess the folks at HTC wern’t too happy once they got wind of this demo because the fella you see in the video is apparently now without job. Maybe he should submit his resume to Gorilla Glassnext. I am sure they love seeing someone put that much faith into their product.

Jump past the break to see the video for yourself. It’s pretty nuts.

About the Author: Stacy Bruce

Stacy Bruce was born and raised in Spokane Washington. He attended the University of Washington to study pre-med only to change his course study a year later to forensic science. Although currently not a doctor or a scientist, some believe he posseses the knowledge of both. He was a resident of San Diego California for ten years, lived beachside and sometimes wonders why the hell he moved back to Spokane. A multi-talented man, Stacy is a fabricator, an artist, a gear head, a tech junkie and at most, the disciple of Casanova. Growing up, he was always enthralled with electronics, gadgets and gizmos. Throughout his life he has had one, if not two, of every cool and new electronic device available. He began his smartphone experience with the original iPhone. After realizing it was more like theirPhone, he decided he wanted the ability to customize, so Stacy moved to the OG Droid and has been a loyal Android fanatic ever since. Moving through all of the top tier Verizon phones, he recently retired his Droid Charge in favor of the Galaxy Nexus, only to wonder what great device Samsung will come out with next. Stacy is a busy new homeowner in where he lives with his beautiful girlfriend and two dogs.

        It was a joke… He was referencing the Nokia 3310’s indestructibility.

    Without a job? This guy just advertised their product like no one else and they fired him? Not buying HTC ever again.

    I… I really don’t see why this guy got fired… it’s not as if the phone failed the test or anything…. it looks flawless. You would expect the phone to be thoroughly thrashed or at least the screen be trashed. AT LEAST. It’s just a great way to show how good the phone is at working under conditions that would destroy lesser beings.
