Hyper 1980's Motion Graphics

This collection is so bad it's good, enjoy...

VIDEODROME (1983) Trailer with hyper '80s graphics for the David Cronenberg classic

JVC - Time Rider - Computer Dreaming (1981)
Unbelievably painfully cheesy video effects demo from JVC circa 1981. They suffered for their art - now it's your turn. 

Quest (1985)
Computer animated short from 1985 featured gratuitous amounts of ray tracing, rendered on a network of 108 Apollo Workstations.

Star Rider (1983)
Background visuals from the hybrid laserdisc/CG arcade game "Star Rider." (watch from 46 seconds onwards...)

Bio-Sensor (1984) / Sio-Benbor (1988)
(This is very odd!) Two shorts for the price of one! Bio-Sensor (1984) is a surreal Japanese film notable for its early use of primitive motion capture, using profile and head-on films of a tiger walking (a la Muybridge). Sio-Benbor (1988) is a French parody notable for having a really cute kitty cat.

Brilliance (1985)
...And now for the obligitary sexy female robot

Semiconductor 20 Hz | Geo-magnetic Storm

"20 Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge suggestive of scientific visualisations. As different frequencies interact both visually and aurally, complex patterns emerge to create interference phenomena that probe the limits of our perception."
