Rendering Spheres Follow Up

Way back in episode XIII, I wrote up some code to render spheres in F# and compared it to an implementation I did in C on a Vax 11/750 in the 80’s. Digging back through some old boxes, I found a picture I took of the huge sphere.

Just to the right of the sphere is a teeny drawing of a Millennium Falcon by Mike Dashow.

Below it is the printer that I used to print it. A Dataproducts, if I recall.

The Apple ][ in the lower left was an ancient machine that was in the closet. Some of the students set it up to play games.
