This is the final in the series of posts about Painball works and Pointillism and is a year old but is a sight to see never the less. MythBusters hosts Jamie Hyneman & Adam Savage (Who I always contested reminded me of two other hosts) built and presented at a Nvidia announcement a 1100 barrel paintball gun that illustrated the parallel processing available on GPU’s to make a recreation of DaVinci’s Mona Lisa in one single group shot.

The gun itself is a sight to see and looks like it was removed from the midsection of a Rocket. All this paintball junk video makes me want to forget city wide kickball and start a Bad at Sports paintball league hahahaha. I bet our Meg can kick the butt of your Meg anytime :)




Hello Everyone, I am Mona Lisa, and It’s Nice to Meet You!

Among some sixty odd exhibits on view, there’s a holographic Mona Lisa that answers questions from viewers in Mandarin (“Are you married?” “Yes, I am married, and my husband loves me so much!”), a gesticulating Jesus speaking to his apostles at The Last Supper, and various well-endowed greek statues come virtually to life.  Glimpse the madness via this brief video clip; it’s in Russian, but that doesn’t matter.
