We have a fascination with these hydraulic press videos. There is something so satisfying about watching object after object just get crushed into oblivion…everything from children’s toys to iPhones to motorcycle helmets.
Now, it’s time for a real test. What happens to a bar of gold when crushed by a hydraulic press? And we mean a real bar of gold. It’s worth $40,000.
While it doesn’t get completely flat, it does look a lot like a slow motion liquid goo of some sort. Cool!
