Video: 34 years of Apple designMarch 5, 2010: 12:21 PM ET
From the Apple I (1976) to the iPad (2010), in high-res animation
The video, rendered with Autodesk's (ADSK) 3ds Max and the Chaos Group's V-Ray, took about 10 days to complete. It would probably have been easier to film the thing, but then it wouldn't have looked anywhere near as cool.
The finished product is available from Vimeo here.
Below the fold: the YouTube version.
