The Mythbusters Build a Paintball Gun with 1,100 Barrels

By September 4, 2008

Follow me on:

The Mythbusters (Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage) recently created a paintball gun with 1,100 barrels to demonstrate the differences between a traditional CPU and a GPU at nVidia's NVISION show. After demonstrating how one gun with one barrel is able to "paint" a picture one frame at a time, they proceeded to show how an 1,100-barreled paintball gun can paint the entire Mona Lisa in less than 1/10th of a second. You can read more about what happened, courtesy of Gizmodo or watch the YouTube video for yourself.
