Recently in Brooklyn, a group of people blew up 10 Xbox 360s and eight controllers. They did this in the name of journalism. We're showing you one of the detonations in the name of wow-this-looks-cool-in-slow-mo.
Photographer Dan Saelinger explains on his blog that he worked with J and M Special Effects in Brooklyn to blow up the Xboxes for a photo shoot commissioned by Fortune Magazine.
The results are amazing, as are the stills Saelinger took of the explosions. Check out the photos and get more details — including a timelapse video that depicts one 360's final moments — at Saelinger's blog.
