Cool (And Peculiar) TRON Videos

Yup, I have more YouTube videos for you. A couple of them are peculiar, and the other two are just damn cool.

Let's get the peculiar ones out of the way first. One is called RON. It has a slow beginning that's kind of odd, but after that it becomes pretty fun to watch. The animation seems to be a mix of TRON and TRON 2.0 styles. The other video is called Internet Romance, and it's really odd . . . yet, I had to show it to you anyway.

Now for the cool ones. The first was discovered by fellow LDSO member Jademz. Aside from the brief moment showing a Light Cycle race from TRON, what makes this video so damn cool? It's showing off a demo called 8088 Corruption on an original IBM 5150 PC, that has an Intel 8088 CPU running at 4.77MHz and CGA graphics capability.

This demo has been around for quite a while, but I didn't find out about it until now from Jademz. Once you watch the video, you'll understand why it's so impressive. You want to see elite coding? This is a great example.

This second video, is like striking gold. Finds like this are what make YouTube worthwhile. It's a special about computer graphics from 1982 called Computer Realities, and it heavily focuses on TRON. Richard Taylor appears in the video, briefly. I've never seen this before, and I'm betting it would never be seen again if it wasn't thanks to the person who uploaded it to YouTube. The video is about seven minutes long. Enjoy!
