[Phandroid] HTC One S Gets Fried With 10,000 Volts of Electricity For Durability And Design - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Maybe now we won't have an HTC phone that has a brick-like weight-to-size ratio.

Thats cool. Although 6000 series aluminum isn't a big whoop... 6061 is just regular extruded aluminum. There's some other treated 6*** that's good but 7050 is when we start talkin! Maybe it was too brittle... But cool innovation! Does like!

Exactly. A van-der-graff generator is 100,000,000 (100 million) volts and they let kids in high school touch them.

Is it stronger than obsidian?

Inversely.... you can make a case 5x thinner than if it was aluminum. wink.gif

nothing special that looks like the aluminum they do for bmx pretty much the same thing heat-treated aluminum 7075

The kids are not touching the 1e+08 V though. A van der Graaffgenerator needs to have a larger diameter proportional to the applied voltage.

Lol at them calling 10kV (of energy!?) in the order of magnitude of a lightning bolt -- they said struck by lightning. Cool feature, too much hype though.

I mean Intel should hype up their 22nm process by saying that their wafer steppers could print out the US with a resolution of 5cm within seconds and it would probably even be true lol tongue.gif

I doubt that the strength was increased significantly. It is more likely that the hardness has been increased by 5x. It looks to me like a process that is is just one step up from anodizing.
Also, this is just the case that is being zapped, not the whole phone; so the amount of power being put through it is kind of irrelevant.

I was thinking the exact same thing! I've seen several hundred cranks, frames, and forks with the same coating.

I do like it though.

Congratulations HTC, you've discovered how to anodize aluminum. rolleyes.gif

While i like that they are using this tech to improve their phones, This video just rubs me the wrong way.
