First Mac Slideshow ever

by Oliver -

firstslideshow.gif21 years ago, the Macintosh was unveiled with the first ever slideshow played on the Mac. (Video uncovered by Industrial Technology & Witchcraft) The audience went nuts when seeing the low res, grayscale images which were mostly screenshots of the Desktop and several early Mac applications. The only transition available was "Flicker" and in order to achieve the performance, the slideshow had to be coded in Assembly Language. Watch Steve hook up the Mac to the projector (how he did that is a big mistery since the Mac did not have a video connector) and do the show. (One can only wonder what the audience would have done seeing a FotoMagico slideshow...)
