Mythbusters end Nvision with a bang… literally
Now, the conclusion was obvious almost as soon as the two started talking about CPUs and GPUs moments after arriving on stage and I have to say I had one of those eye-rolling moments. Jamie was then handed a remote control and wheeled out a robot that then proceeded to fire paintballs at a screen, drawing a smiley face in blue paint on a white background.
There was a certain amount of coincidence in what was shown here – I mean, who’s logo is blue on a white background? Yeah, and that led me to another eye-rolling moment. Knowing this was the Mythbusters though, things were only likely to get better – and, boy, they sure did!
The curtain was then pulled up as the stage was emptied, revealing a huge monstrosity covered by a white sheet. Savage said “underneath this sheet, there are thousands of pounds of aluminium and steel, a mile of high-pressure air hose, hundreds of pounds of compressed air and 1,100 specifically compressed paintballs in 1,100 barrels,” as he pulled the sheet back.
