This 840-barrel paintball gun paints a picture in less than a second

Painting is a long tedious project. Well, it normally is. But if you're painting with an insane 840-barrel paintball gun? It's much faster.

Built as a marketing stunt for V Energy drink, this monster fires off 840 paintballs in a mere 1/8th of a second. It weighs in at 3.1 tons, and I can't even imagine the logistics that went into making it a reality. But hey, anything to create some art/sell some energy drinks!

We've actually seen something like this before: the MythBusters used an automated paintball turret to paint a picture of the Mona Lisa.
