The "SGI IRIS 2400 (1985)" presentation really turned me on:
".If all comes together in a system, that transfoms clips and diplays data
at rates to 70,0000 coordinates per second.Gives you twentytwothousand
depth-cueded lines per second.With true pespective.The system performs
operations with full thirtytwo bit floating point precision... Your
workstation calculates and draws beziers. B-Splines! Cardinal-Splines! And
other cubic curves in real time.
That's marketing I understand, doh!

Great stuff from the 1980's.. I particularly like Alias's "Eric the Dynamic
Worm" and Rhythm and Hues's Chromosaur!
