People are losing it after YouTuber ruins $3500 Apple Vision Pro headset with scalpel

People are losing it after YouTuber ruins $3500 Apple Vision Pro headset with scalpel

That's a whole lot of money to practically pour down the drain for a YouTube video.

If you don't like watching money being basically burned, look away now.

Popular YouTuber JerryRigEverything has got his hands on the Apple Vision Pro - which starts at an eye-watering price of $3,499 - and if you've seen any of his YouTube videos, well, you know what happens next.

Jerry says he reviews "technology from the inside" - which basically means he tears it apart to see how it works.

And he's given the exact same treatment to Apple's new AR headset, shattering the front glass, burning the fabric strap and trying to snap the aluminum frame.

This isn't an Apple hit job - before getting to work on the headset, Jerry did give it a go, and he said: "As a diehard Android user and a PC consumer, the Apple Vision Pro rocked my socks."

But that didn't stop him from doing what he does best - taking apart the device to really get a look at the build quality, hardware and durability.

Very early on, he identified what he said was the best piece of construction in the whole headset, and it might surprise you - because Jerry is a big fan of the soft and comfortable fabric strap.

Things get really interesting when Jerry does the scratch test on the front with what looks like a scalpel. He thought the front would be glass, but instead discovers it's a plastic cover over glass (on the website, Apple calls this 'laminated glass').

This is good to know for any lucky owners of the headset - while it means the front is much less likely to shatter when you drop it, Jerry still says it scratches easily - so you won't want to put it next to your keys or some loose change as it could leave a "permanent mark".

Jerry does, however, call the aluminum body a "work of art", as it withstands him trying to bend it with his hands.

He says it's "incredibly awesome in the inside", while also being incredibly complex with lots of different screws, making Jerry suspect it's not a device that's made to be repaired.

Inside, he found dual motherboards - one to go over each eye - a whole lot of thermal paste, different chips to power the device and more.

As you can probably imagine, people have mixed feelings about watching such an expensive piece of tech get absolutely destroyed.

"I can't help but feel a mix of excitement and anxiety watching you tear apart these expensive gadgets," one comment read.

Another said: "That was almost painful to watch initially. Then I really got into the deconstruction/destruction."

While others apparently fully appreciate seeing tech get teared apart: "I love how you scratch and destroy this. Very satisfying. And a beautiful piece of tech inside."
