Sega Studies the Science of Blowing Stuff Up

By Published on .

Sega "Sega Labs"
The pursuit of knowledge—and destruction—has led Sega to open Sega Labs, an online destination that promotes the video game publisher's upcoming racing title Full Auto. Upon entering the Sega Labs facility, visitors are greeted by the site's brilliantly cheesy host, who proceeds to guide you through a series of hilarious behind-the-scenes videos. The videos feature a group of scientists meticulously researching the physics of actual explosions by blowing up everything from a propane tank to a port-o-potty—all in the name of perfecting the realism of the explosion-laden game.
