There is no denying Blendtec founder Tom Dickson has earned the title of überBlendermeister with his online "Will It Blend?" series of videos. Using his company's Total Blender, Tom has over the years inserted, among many other things, popular and often expensive high-tech devices, and then pressed the appropriate button on the machine to start the action. Since its beginning in 2007, "Will It Blend?" videos have documented in a combination of full speed and slow motion the pulverizing of iPhones, iPads, Galaxy phones, Windows phones, Kindles, laser pointers, wii remote controls, Xbox 360 Kinect, a hearing aid, a video camera, magnets, and even a cassette tape. In the most recent episode, Tom hosts a blend-off with one Total Blender tackling an iPhone 6 Plus and the other a Galaxy Note 3. If you have watched his other videos, the outcome was predictable ... and always entertaining.
This collection of video and a few audio files represents files that have been featured on the RF Cafe homepage. Every week or so a new file is added that should be of interest to RF Cafe visitors.
