Tron - how far have we come?

15 Jul 2003|Added Value

One of Cory Doctorow’s posts on Boing Boing referred to Dodge’s new Tron-like concept motorycle. Made me think – how far have we come since the early 80’s. Personally, I was learning about the concept of computer graphics by filling in graph-paper boxes with colored pencils to simulate pixel layouts. And Tron was on our recommended viewing list.

Now, I still sometimes edit a Photoshop graphic one colored pixel at a time. I’ve interacted with others via their online avatars (but a real gamer, I’m most definitely not) and I’ve been mentally sucked into many an online experience. I’ll have to go back and rent that movie again, if only to see Bruce Boxleitner. 😉
