Tired of dealing with your malfunctioning Xbox? Kill it with a power washer

While there is certainly not a shortage of new and interesting ways to completely trash a dead Xbox(360), the guys at Waterjets have found one of the best. They took a bunch of dead Xboxs and Xbox360s and subjected them to their extremely precise power washers. The result? Some very pretty cutouts of Xbox hardware. The power washers handled circuitry, heatsink and case alike with relative ease, making everything from an X in the middle of an Xbox to a 360 degree hole in the Xbox360. Waterjets' work is below.

waterjets are in the range of 50k to 60k psi and cut through almost everything like it's butter. unlike las0rs or welding they dont heat whatever they are cutting

I think if you look at some blueprints for the original XBOX model it was going to be an 'X', a silver 'X' if my memory serves me correctly ;)

Wow... a long range water fight with those would be incredibly painful but fun - if you were far enough apart so that it didn't cut through you!

:roll: I thought those words weren't supposed to be used in the same sentence ;). As a matter of fact, there used to be similar "power washers". Anyone remember the Super Soaker Monster series? The Constant Pressure System series? The ones that were bigger then you? They were so powerful, I think they peeled someones flesh off and an angry mother sued. Now we can only use crap super soakers like the "flash flood" and backpack-powered units that require a good 10 second pump every 3 seconds...it's disgusting, really :(.

My friend got me on the back with one of those massive ones about the size of your average 12 year old. It made me bleed and left a nasty bruise :p
