The hydraulic press has become one of this year’s major breakout stars. Denizens of the internet are obsessed with watching the machinery totally obliterate whatever sits between its jaws—it’s partly soothing and wholly mesmerizing.

This is what I’d imagine would happen to the White Witch from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe if the icy villainess found herself up against the powerful contraption. 

Majorly cool
