In the 1980s, computer graphics were an acquired taste for some. I would try and explain to people why they were so magical. Half of them got it, the other half would complain they looked nothing like Disney. The work, especially in the early 1980s was still coming into its own, so when I had the opportunity to watch demo reels, I would. Usually over and over again. With graphics like this, who could blame me?
Here are three examples of drool-worthy graphics from the Japan Computer Lab from 1983, 1984 and 1985. 1983 doesn’t have any sound, but it is worth watching, just put on a cool sountrack while you watch it.
