NeXT Computer Introduction 1988 from Keith Ohlfs on Vimeo.

In 1988 when Steve Jobs unveiled the NeXT Computer at Davies Hall in San Francisco, he pulled back the veil and the computer introduced itself with this animation. I created the animation using Display Postscript, and Steve wrote the text. As far as I know that animation was never published. I recently dusted off the animation and converted it to a video file. I was going to send it to him, but he passed away before I could. Steve was a huge inspiration in my life and his passion for uncompromising form and function has shaped my vision for the future of design and technology. He will be missed.
