Grant Imahara built an arc reactor with his bare hands. He cosplays as the Tenth Doctor. He built Geoffrey the Robot for Craig Ferguson. He competed in Battlebots. He worked at Lucasfilm and ILM and on upgrading R2 for the prequels.
A perfect person. And yes I typed that all up off the top of my head. Because I want to be Grant when I grow up.
He also reworked the robotics inside the Energizer Bunny so that it didn’t just go straight and hit it’s drum, but did that little spin it does as well.
Also I met him when we lived in San Fran and he is as adorable and sweet as he appears on TV.
… he’s really pretty. Why have I never watched Mythbusters? I think I need to watch Mythbusters.
If you have Netflix, they have a lot of eps up. He’s the robot expert on the show and was a later addition to the group (so I don’t think he’s on the first season, IIRC?).
