While we’re looking at things Nodal: The Sandin Analogue Image Processor (or IP) is an impressive looking device, and is demonstrated by a man in an impressive looking hat.

(If you’re impatient, skip towards the end for some analogue video trippy colour coolness)

There is so much beauty in this video: The hat. Analogue versions of effects we’re still using today. Calling a tech demo “a romp”. The Hat. The digital computers “kind of thing which does your bills and payroll” quip (inspiration for Apple perhaps?). Physical patching of video modules. THE HAT! WHERE DID IT COME FROM?

Ok, perhaps the hat is part of Dan Sandin’s “copy it right distribution religion”. Definitely a forward thinker, that man.
