Mashable’s Deputy Tech Editor Samantha Kelly recently got an inside peek at Apple’s latest tech, the Liam iPhone-‘deconstructing’ robot.

You can watch the official ‘Innovation Story’ video on Apple’s YouTube channel:
The videos appear to show a singular ‘bot arm, but as Kelly notes Liam is actually “a large-scale robot, with 29 freestanding robotic arms at various skill stations.” The videos also show relatively uniform iPhones getting ‘deconstructed’ but as we all know sometimes when we upgrade or replace our devices it’s because the screen is cracked or even bent out of shape after being ran over by a bus (hey it happens). Of course there are always other ways to upcycle your devices at home.
