My 12 year old plays with my broken Touch

This is what happens when you give a 12 year old your broken kobo touch.

(the first bit isn't the best filming, but it gets better, I promise!)

(sorry about the URL - tried to embed the youtube video, but it didn't work. Need my son again!)

Hmm - not working for me sorry. embedded YouTube says "An error occurred. Please try again later". (Not very helpful error message!)

I've removed the embedding - not sure why it's not working. Now it's a direct link to youtube (if that's allowed)

Fixed.

Good job! Love the broken ruler lying on the table. Suggests a story.

That battery is clearly not meant to be replaceable.

Interesting video, looks like part of the inside is some sort of cast metal (which is surprising because the touch feels rather light). Perchance did the sticker on the battery have any useful information? (Voltage, capacity, etc.?)

The battery says:
Li-ion Battery
3.7V 1000mAh 3.7Wh
Model NO: LP404252ARU

There is some kind of cast metal down each side and scattered throughout which looks almost lead like. Not sure what the purpose of it all is.

Hi,
Really loved watching this de-construction. You have a brainy brother there.
Lot of fun seeing how calm the lad was.
