1970's cutting edge computer graphics
Here is a archive of an old computer book that has some amazing graphics for the time. A lot of the work is pure junk, but look and see some cool examples.
It is cool to see how far they pushed the envelope then.


Done using a IBM 360/65 in 1976.

You can watch the helicopter sample on youtube. Link

Magi Synthavision was one of the companies that did the CGI for Tron, along with Triple I (Information International Inc.). On the Deluxe Edition DVD of Tron are example animations predating Tron (starting from 1972). Unfortunatly I only could find one of the shorts from Triple I on youtube clicky. Really impressive.

the book at Atariarchives is not only a great read, but ihmo it shows beautiful works of art and, in a way, computer art way superior and valuable than what you see in the computer box these days, both in the entertainment than in the medium that delivers it.
