40 Explosive Innovations

From High-Speed Vase-Shattering to a Bubbling Home Bomb

— July 11, 2009 — Tech
These explosive innovations are the bomb--literally and colloquially. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.) The sheer variety of products and designs featured below proves how gripping it is to watch something explode--and how badass it is to have a ceramic grenade as a piggy bank.

From a kitchen sink bomb to exploding hearts and slow-motion vase-shattering, experience the magic of destruction below.

Implications - Who doesn't like blowing stuff up? The only bad part is that it's so instantaneous that you can't really enjoy it for all its glory. Lucky for you, these photographs will show you the moments you miss when something is being blown to bits. Here you'll witness destruction in all its glory and beauty.
