The above video is an ad for the new Panasonic ToughPad tablet. To show its ruggedness, the agency Shilo that did the commercial rolled it in a dryer, sandblasted it, high-pressure water jetted it and... manipulated it with the Robotiq Adaptive Gripper. It is with great enjoyment that we watch this video that should scare any iPad out there. Plus the tablet looks like a pretty good computer interface for industrial automation too!
