After graduating from San Francisco State, Kari Byron began her career as an artist, working in sculpture and painting. Her sculpting skills and love for odd jobs soon led her into the world of model-making and toy-prototyping: a job with Jamie Hyneman at M5 Industries. It was here that Kari got her first big break with the Mythbusters team. Before becoming a Mythbuster,


Grant Imahara was an animatronics engineer and modelmaker for George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic. He specialized in electronics and radio control at the ILM Model Shop, and has credits Star Wars: Episodes I-III, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Matrix:Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions, Van Helsing, and others. He has installed upgraded electronics in R2-D2 units for Star Wars Episodes I and II, and is one of only three official R2-D2 operators in the United States. Grant developed a custom circuit to cycle the Energizer Bunny's arm beats and ears at a constant rate. He performed all electronics installation and radio programming on the current generation of Bunnies. For fun, Grant has competed in Comedy Central’s BattleBots with his robot "Deadblow," which he designed and built.
