Identify this TV nerd:

Nothing can stop this man, as long as he has science on his side! With a seemingly never-ending supply of bright ideas, bad guys, and conveniently placed props, this dude has pulled of some extremely awesome “hacks”. For example, he
– once created a rocket launcher using fertilizer and some farming implements.
– unlocked a car’s remote locking system with a mobile phone.
– constructed an airgun from a telescope and an air horn

In short, this man’s genius knows no bounds. He’s more awesome than Chuck Norris and Rajanikanth together. Who is he?

Jayanth , Shashank , Dhruva , sharath , alephnull , Gammafunction , prasanth , iamniks , Prasad , Abhishek , shivathilak , uma , Poornima , bobo and nihit figured it out, using naught but google and wikipedia.

Answer:MacGvyer! The inimitable genius played by Richard Dean Anderson has been the childhood idol of many a geek. Or mine, at least. Explains a lot, doesn’t it. Look through the comments for more links

  16. I can't believe you put his face up there and expected his name as the answer! It's rather too straight – given rise to the word "MacGyverism" in essence, a modern day word for a technical bricoleur.

    A series from the 80s that got every kid excited about science and technology… well, I'm late but I downloaded 2 seasons and watched! :)
