• Jamie Hyneman designed Blendo, a combat
robot that was deemed too hazardous for
Robot Wars after repeatedly throwing pieces
of its opponents over arena walls. It received
co-championship status in exchange for
withdrawing from the competition.

    • I looked it up. It doesn’t have any blades or things sticking out of it. It’s literally just a dome that spins so fast that nothing can touch it without getting sent to the shadow realm.

    • This is true! Adam Savage wired the electronics and control systems. Blendo had the first effective implementation of the full-body kinetic energy spinner weapon that became common in Robot Wars. Unrelatedly, yes, Grant Imahara died suddenly following a brain aneurysm. R.I.P

    • RIP Grant Imahara. He was my favorite of the trio and I still can't believe he's gone. He also designed the initial prototypes which would later become the mechatronics in Disney World and he's a genuine car guy too. I miss him a lot. I wish I could've met him at comic con in 2016 but I never did 😥

Rest In Peace Grant Imahara (11/23/1970 - 07/13/2020) We are grateful for everything you've done for your friends and strangers alike & we appreciate you being a part of both our childhoods and some of our adulthoods.

    • He is an actual madman. He built that "lawnmower" for mythbusters that had a hybrid electric motor and a 100 pound steel blade. They used it once and it scarred them so had they never turned it on again.
