Watch Acetone Delete a Keyboard in a Soothing Timelapse Video

As someone who makes his living as a writer, I can tell you there have been multiple occasions when I wanted to smash my keyboard into a million little pieces. When I finally snap after my space bar gets stuck again, there might be a far more satisfying, aesthetically pleasing way for me to express anger towards my electronics. I can give my keyboard a nice, long acetone bath instead of destroying it with blunt force, because this video shows dissolving a keyboard is strangely soothing.

This comes from the YouTube channel Amazing Timelapse, and it consists of 11,000 photos of a standard plastic keyboard slowly dissolving in acetone. The images were taken over 70 hours. It starts off slow, but then the plastic starts to melt away as the keyboard appears to be slowly sinking into some unseen dimension. By the end, the remnants look like some strange alien material that was found alongside a UFO crash site.

It’s bizarre how tranquil that video is, but that’s mostly because of what was put in the acetone. The entire tone changes depending on what you immerse. If, for example, you use a small Playmobil man, the whole experiment takes on a much more sinister feel.

Sure, I’ve felt like wrecking my keyboard a few times, but that doesn’t mean I want to recreate Walter White’s very special type of bath.
