Beyond the Mind's Eye - 04 Brave New World

 Beyond the Mind's Eye was a video that came out in 1992 that featured the latest in computer animation.  I had it on VHS.  It is primitive by today's standards, but there was a 2 minute sequence that really impressed me then and it is still fun to watch today.   It starts about 93 seconds into the video below.

Fractals The Hidden Dimension HD 1080p / Nova

I saw this video a few years ago on television.  I found the first 35 minutes to be very interesting.  The last 20 minutes not so much...

I learned about Fractals and the Mandelbrot set in the 1980's.   Back then I had friends who were experimenting with drawing the Mandelbrot set on computers.  In those days it would take a really long time to draw a single picture on a computer.
