An historical Dreamcast Tech Demo.

The Dreamcast DevKit Tower of Babel demo was fixed by a skilled individual to run on emulators. The small frame glitches in the video are emulators artefacts.

This video is thus the best quality available for this demo.



Footage captured in May 1998 when Sega officially revealed the Dreamcast for the first time

I never thought I'd ever see it in motion. :)

Has the other early tech demo been obtained? The one with the animated head and bumo mapped golf ball?

The Irimajiri Face demo? I don't know if the demo was obtained but there's pretty much always been footage of it on YouTube:

You 30-40 year old guys got it good, was too young to witness the early days of Dreamcast.

Imagine seeing this shit, when the N64 was the best thing in town.

Has anyone got this thing running on real hardware? the overhead shots are impressive as hell, and I don't think they're using LODs for anything other than the textures.
