LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6 (UPI) -- The head of a computer graphics firm announced his company was behind a crop circle discovered last week in a California field.
Jen-Hsun Huang, president and chief executive officer of Santa Clara, Calif., computer graphics company NVIDIA, announced Sunday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas his company created the crop circle to draw attention to the release of a mobile processor designed for use in automobiles, tablets and cellphones, CNN reported Monday.
"It is true. The NVIDIA marketing team is behind this phenomenon," Huang said. "What you're looking at here is 310 feet in diameter. It is what people call a crop circle."
Huang said the crop circle was akin to the Tegra K1 graphics chip.
"It's like, out of this world, it's practically built by aliens," Huang said.
Huang said the marketing team flew in a British group known for crop circle creation to create the design in a Chualar field.
