You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

That's what they should have used for that one myth involving dynamite painting.

It also illustrates an interesting point. I'd imagine lectures from the mythbusters would be entertaining.

It seems like every other episode they're making a pneumatic spud gun modified for whatever task they need it for. I love those guys!

Those guys got their start with George Lucas at the Skywalker ranch studios so they have access to anything and everything. I imagine they didn't actually build those robots themselves but showing them off for their robot building buddies. I can't see them having time to actually apply themselves much with their busy schedule.

That second one worked just like a giant inkjet printer.
