If you picked up a Nintendo 3DS XL recently then chances are you're currently treating it like a piece of treasured jewellery, delicately laying it on a soft cushion when it's not in use and generally ensuring no harm comes to it.

However, dovetastic - presenter of the YouTube Microwave Show - had no such ideas.

He took his shiny new console and microwaved the seven hells out of it. The results of which are currently on eBay, selling for $2,241.00.

Needless to say: don't try this at home.
