‘The Juggler’ Demo for the Amiga
In 1986, personal computers were not supposed to be powerful enough to render, in real-time, reflections and movement in 3D. But Eric Graham’s “The Juggler” demo for the Amiga did just that, building on the success of the original Amiga “Boing” demo and shocked everyone again. In fact, Commodore’s own legal department thought the demo impossible to create without a mainframe and had to be shown the special software and code used before allowing The Juggler to be seen publicly.
