The team behind Mythbusters is working with the Discovery Channel on two new projects.
Prototype This will be a 13 part series that investigates whether the gadgets and technology seen in science fiction movies have any real world viability. Maybe the show will help kick start the flying car and transporter. Those are tops on my list.
The second show will be Cool Stuff: How it Works. This will be a four part series investigation of how some current technology, like a fireproof suit, actually works.
There is no word on whether Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage will be involved with either project or even what network they will be shown on. More importantly, there is no mention whatsoever of Kari Byron. I say put her in both shows and they will probably double their chance of success.
