Making of the Computer Graphics for Star Wars (Episode IV)

This is what doing CAD was like in 1977. Especially amusing is the computer tech of the time . . .

Quote
(1977) The computer graphics for the first Star Wars film was created by Larry Cuba in the 1970s at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) (at the time known as the Circle Graphics Habitat) at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
