Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage of the Mythbusters, were invited to NVISION to wow the crowd and they managed to do it by rendering the Mona Lisa with a paint ball machine, supposedly in some type of "scientific" way comparing the GPU to the CPU.

We never really understood the exact comparison, but that doesn't make it any less super cool to watch, especially in 720p HD slow mo baby.

 

You can also download a 1080p HD version over at the NVIDIA website. Go grab the videos, over here.
