    Grant Imahara, Host of 'MythBusters' and 'White Rabbit Project,' Dies at 49

    Grant Imahara, an electrical engineer and roboticist who hosted the popular science show MythBusters and Netflix's White Rabbit Project, has died. He was 49.

    While as part of the MythBusters team he sky-dived and drove stunt cars, on film sets he came into contact with some of the most iconic characters in screen history, installing lights onto Star Wars' R2-D2, creating the robot Geoff Peterson for The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson and working on the Energizer Bunny.


    While I liked Mythbusters and R2-D2, Geoff was one of my favorite robots.

    I got more laughs from that Ferguson show than I can remember, and that robot was definitely one of the biggest reasons.
