Ever get the urge to just take something apart? Well it seems PopSci got pretty bored with their Wii, they only played it for one afternoon and then took the darn thing apart.

"The plan was simple: carefully disassemble the little white box and controllers for a detailed inside look, then re-assemble it with ease and get back to where we left off, working up a sweat bludgeoning our little cartoon selves in Wii Sports Boxing. But the Wii proved to be one tough nut to crack. Due to Nintendo's special proprietary screws, we had to resort to brute force. And in the process of doing so, our precious white beacon of joy was rendered unplayable, forever."

Now children, PopSci have done this for you... there is no need to attempt this when you get your Wii. Head on over to the PopSci blog to view the entire gallery.
