iPad 2 screen bends to extreme angles

The glass used in any glass screen tablet is a lot stronger than normal glass. It can still shatter, especially when impacted by a sharp object (putting all the force in one spot), but it’s a lot more resistant than you’d think. This video shows one aspect of that, namely the bendiness of the iPad 2 screen, compared to the iPad 1 screen. Bending the screen isn’t something you’d normally do since it would also bend the iPad itself and wreak havoc with the internal components, but it’s still fun to watch.
