Watch Pixar co-founder's 1972 computer animations of face and hand

In 1972, Frederic Ira Parke, while a grad student at the University of Utah, created the first computer graphics animation, above, of a human face, and with fellow student (and Pixar co-founder) Ed Catmull made the groundbreaking computer animation, below, of a human hand.

Some of this film, titled "A Computer Animated Hand," was used in the 1976 movie Futureworld. I would like to see a new Pixar movie using these old technologies.

(thanks, UPSO!)
