Journal Noryungi's Journal: 1977 Star Wars Computer Graphics 1

Submitted today to Slashdot:
The interestingly named "Topless Robot" has a real trip down memory lane: how the computer graphics of the original Star Wars movie were made. The article points to this YouTube video of a short documentary made by Larry Cuba, the original artist, explains how he did it. In 1977. Computer graphics and Star Wars: what could be better?

Seriously, though: it's great.
