Miraculous Spray-On Coating Protects a Watermelon From a 45-Metre Drop

By Andrew Liszewski on at

The amateur scientists at YouTube’s How Ridiculous covered a watermelon in fancy Line-X spray and dropped it off a 45-metre tower. Not only did the watermelon survive the fall, it actually bounced on impact.

When the Line-X-protected watermelon was cut open afterwards, using an industrial saw, the insides had been reduced to mush. But the rind was shockingly still completely intact. Which begs the question: when can we start covering our fragile smartphones with this stuff? [YouTube]
