Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde
Animation, Art, and Other Shiny Things
The last installment in the Beyond the Mind’s Eye series.
Next series up would be the Odyssey Into the Mind’s Eye, and we will get to it eventually, but not just yet. There’s a lot of excellent animation out there now and I’m getting a bit of a backlog of great stuff in the draft queue that needs to be posted.
No, nothing to do with the operating system we love to hate. This video is more a mellow architectural/design tour. You can tell it’s age as all the displays use CRTs.
Whoever animated this video was running some heavy fuel…
This video, Transformers, is a good example of how far computer animation had advanced in the two short years between The Mind’s Eye videos (1990) and this compilation.
Brave New World is the fourth installment of Beyond the Mind’s Eye and, besides showing off some good video processing power with the geometric transformations, gives us a bit of a virtual tour through a computer. This is 1992, remember, and the Pentium CPU wasn’t released until the following year, so it’s likely patterned on a 486 mainboard – and well patterned I might say, the board is quite recognizable to an old hardware geek like me.
Incredible detail for 1992
