Electronics company confesses to creating California crop circle

We now know who is responsible for that mysterious crop circle that appeared in California's Monterey County last month.

The CEO of Nvidia confessed all during a press conference on Sunday for the company at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The crop circle near Chualar contained a stylized image of a computer chip and the number "192" in Braille.

The crop circle received national attention and guards had to be hired to keep people out until the owner of the land plowed it under.

The electronics company says it hired a company to create the image and made anonymous phone calls to local television stations in hopes of generating publicity for its new product -- a chip for tablets and smartphones that contains 192 graphics cores.
