Pop Sci had an easy task: open up the Wii box and take pictures of it. It was easy in theory. However, since Nintendo put the thing together with proprietary screws, Pop Sci had to pull the old Conan the Barbarian holding up the wall in order to get the console open. The result? A broken console and a whole bunch of pictures of the inside.

Take a look at the gallery and see the chipset, the two wifi antennas, and the slot-loading disc drive. And then cry as you realize you're staring at the never-be-played-again innards of a beautiful Wii.
