Holy Crap! A Giant Robot Storms San Diego Comic Con 2013

It took the mighty minds and resources of WIRED, YouTube, Stan Winston School, Legacy Effects, and Conde Nast Entertainment to create an insanely detailed, one-of-a-kind, 9 foot 9 inch Mech with four arms to usher in the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. And who better to announce it than Adam Savage, of Tested and Mythbusters. It is ready to blow your mind. And coming soon to YouTube’s Geek Week … a huge mini-series showing how this colossus was built.

Cannonball Run!!! Mythbusters misfire proves dangerous, and causes horrific damages in California

TV show Mythbusters was left with some explaining to do after an experiment it conducted to measure the speed of a cannon ball went wrong, leaving a trail of destruction across a California suburb.

No one was injured. Thankfully, but that was just by dumb luck.
