TOLEDO (WTVG) -- Sometimes, it takes a sledge hammer to properly get the point across.

On this installment of Imagine It!, Carl Nelson, the Chief Scientist at the Imagination Station, wields a mighty hammer to illustrate the absorbing power of a crumple zone.

Underneath that zone, in this case represented by a cinder block, is 13abc's Tony Geftos, who is pincushioned between two beds of nails.

It's an age-old magic trick explained using basic scientific principles with a dramatic ending on this Imagine It!
