Specifically one of those plastic spiral slides - I was at the playground with my children yesterday and when we went down the slide there was enough static generated to stick our hair on end. Of course my son has more hair than I do by now...
Anyway, there was a drastic increase in charge - such that I could feel the buildup as we got closer to the ground. And when we grounded it felt like a jolt from my feet to my hair. I'm not super intimate with electricity, but from what I know that seems like it was a lot.
I had my cell phone in my pocket, and was wearing my DSLR around my neck, but both devices seemed to be un-damaged by the voltage - I'm guessing it just didn't pass through them.
Is there a circumstance where the static could damage these electronics, based on how I was holding them or something? Or are they designed well enough that they would withstand this staticy sort of shenanigans?
