Want To Know What It's Like To Drop Your Wii U GamePad?

Those crazy guys over at GizmoSlip are known for their drop tests, testing the durability of expensive new gadgets by dropping them from a maximum height of 6 feet onto a concrete surface with no other aim but to see if it smashes into a million pieces or not.

The Wii U GamePad was next on their 'to break' list, plunging it to its doom from three different angles: on its front, on the side, and - for the ultimate finale - on the screen. It's not as mental as the guys who love to microwave their new products, but still a bit odd nonetheless.

How will the GamePad's hardware fare out? Will it break, or will it survive? Watch the video below and find out. (Wii U)

Seems pretty solid, I mean, its like alot of kids out there are going to be dropping there Wii controllers onto a concrete floor, most houses I assume are carpeted or have laminate flooring, which is obviously softer

Wow it's built like a tank, mine feels good in my hands but the plastic part feels cheapish (probably to help make it light) but I guess it only FEELS like it as shown it can survive pavement droppings.

Is that a grape?

No, it's a controller.

3:01 that's a grape, no doubt in my mind. Or a very strange black olive...

OT the controller seems nice and solid, glad it isn't easily broken, seeing as how they haven't started selling them separately yet.

It seems pretty sturdy. I wonder if everything works as it should, though. There are a lot of technology inside it that could be damaged even if the screen and casing still are in one piece. They can't really tell unless they hook it up to the console.

The main thing I took from this video is that the Gamepad is very acrobatic. I expect to see it in the 2016 Olympics.
