Purdue University Invites Donors to Smash Computers With Sledgehammers

Feeling frustrated with technology? A fundraiser at Purdue University allowed donors to take sledgehammers to computers, printers and other devices.

Computer design and graphics students let Purdue students, faculty and staff whack computers set up on the Engineering Mall Friday. For $1, donors got 30 seconds to smash and destroy computer equipment.

Money from the event went to an organization for Purdue students interested in computer graphics.
