It's amazing to see that computer generated animation of any kind exited back as early as 1963. Given the level of computers back then, this little animation probably took a day or two to put together, and it's just simple wire-frames. Technology sure has come a far way since then, hasn't it?

Huh... there's not much to it, but considering how old it is, I bet that turned a lot of heads back then. Amazing what can happen over half a century, huh?

I have to wonder just how they did it, seeing as this was back when a single computer filled an entire room. :XD:

I wonder how much heat those computers produced while making it. I know Gen's laptop exhausts some really hot air while it's in encoding mode.

Well, I get the feeling they didn't output that much more than normal, really.
