These Are Computer Graphics From The 1980s

It's only been three decades, but it might as well have been 300. These Japan Computer Graphics Lab demo reels show just how far computer graphics have come in such a short span of time.

The graphics look dated, sure, but not bad. Many of them have more visual style than current "realistic" generation graphics.

There are two clips; one dates from 1984, and the other dates from 1985. In the link before, there is another clip from 1983, which is worth checking out, too.

Magical stuff.
