1981 Early Computer Graphics

This was way ahead of its time in many ways, CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) was still brand new at this level and most people had never imagined computer graphics of this complexity. Even though "TRON" was not a commercial success, it helped CGI enter the film industry in a way that is taken for granted today. Super computers of that era were used to create the graphics (PDP-10, Cray)
