Nvidia Corp., which makes chips for PCs and smartphones, confessed to being behind the image.
When you look closely, it does in fact resemble a computer chip and the number "192" — the amount of mini-computers inside its new Tegra K1 chip — in Braille.
From "impossibly advanced" to "aliens" was not a big leap. "We eventually said, 'You know, what's graceful and alien? Crop circles.'"
They then set to work, swearing everyone to secrecy, hiring a Hollywood location scout to find "the perfect field in Northern California," and flying in a British group who have made crop circles before. Starting buzz for the creation, the company called anonymous tip lines for news stations in the Bay Area, telling them: "Something's going on out in Chualar."
A crudely made video also popped up on YouTube purporting to show two men -- in reality, Murray and another NVIDIA employee -- getting out of a car and looking at strange lights coming from the farmer's field and then stumbling toward them. By the morning of December 30, the news trucks were rolling in and, with them, throngs of curious onlookers. The company hired security to keep them from trampling over the farmer's fields.

Has anyone found out how many people it took and how long it took them to finish it?
I'm guessing it wasn't made overnight.
Harry Johnson, an 85-year-old retiree who lives about a mile from the field, may have seen evidence of the crop circle makers.
Over the weekend, he said, he and his wife saw five or six people and a few vehicles at the field on successive mornings. On Sunday morning, he said there was a 30-foot ladder leaning against a pole near the field.
"It was just a little unusual," he said. The people at the field weren't dressed in typical field clothing, so Johnson figured they may have been inspecting something.
Then on Monday he saw the crop circle story breaking on television."

come on people it says that specific crop circle
Now, the entire crop circle contains three coded messages according to renowned crop circle researcher, Dr Horace Drew. According to Dr Drew, a retired molecular biologist who worked at Caltech and Australia’s CSIRO.
One of the coded messages was to be vigilant about an upcoming astronomical event. The next message referred to a date in the near future when an astronomical event is to occur by July 8, 2014. The third message was that comet ISON was a space transportation system under intelligent extraterrestrial control with a specific mission for the inner solar system and Earth.
The first message, the Braille code was quickly interpreted as a series of numbers and letter: 192-192-2-192-1-192-192 and can be translated as: “The blind will see, and those who seek will find.”
The second message is an outer code featuring three tall poles accompanied by numbers using Morse code. The message was 3-space-3-space-1 and referring to an event timed to occur in the near future: “we should go around the “polar clock” by three full turns until some “event time” is reached.”
The date referred to by the number 192 in the main coded message is July 8, 2014, which is 192 days from December 28. Significantly, the alignment of planets on July 8, matches the crop circle configuration of celestial bodies.
The third message is an inner code again using Morse code. This message refers to comet ISON.
Dr. Drew translated the code as: E-T B I-S-O-N S-T-S.
ET – B(e) - (extra-terrestrials exist)
ISON – (comet)
STS – (Space Transportation System)
The three planets seems to marked hourly times: 1-2-9 along the face of a polar clock. The overall imagery used at the crop circle was that of a “polar clock.” This “polar clock” shows a “bright, long-tailed comet” as the predicted astronomical event and might be to suggest that some important astronomical event (e.g. a “bright comet”) will first be seen at 12 midnight in Earth’s sky, at some particular place (London?) and on some particular date.
Coincidence: The illuminati card ‘Combined Disasters’ shows the Big Ben in London.
The clock shows: 2/3-11
Take the mirror image of the clock and you get: 1/2-9 (1-2-9)
One part of the Morse code (“E-T B”) also shows a fair resemblance to a five-body alignment of four planets and the Sun in early January of 2014, including as a sixth body, any remnants of comet Ison along its last known orbital path.
Thus we can see Mercury, the Sun, Venus, Earth, any remnants of comet Ison (ISON = STS), and Jupiter all aligned in a heliocentric perspective over the early part of January 2014.
So could the Salinas crop circle refer to an upcoming extraterrestrial event connected to the remnants of Comet ISON, which was no comet at all?
We will have to wait and see in the months ahead, and the possible July 8 date, whether an astronomical event occurs that settles once and for all the true nature of comet ISON and whether an extraterrestrial intelligence was behind it.
Nvidia is a company which likes word play, symbolism and likes to invest in multiple levels of meaning. One of the key roots of the name Nvidia is the word Invidia, which is Latin for envy. Envy and vision are closely tied in mythology with the eye or the gaze being a common symbol. Envy is also closely tied with the color green. All of these play into Nvidia's logos and branding.
