I've just seen an arcade video game called "Dragon's Lair" which has
a quality of graphics at least an order of magnitude better than any
computer-generated images I've ever seen, and at least comparable to
the best, most painstakingly hand-drawn animation I've seen.  The detail,
shading, expression, and speed of animation are astounding, not to
mention the humor with which it is done.  Has anyone else out there
seen this game?  Does anyone have an idea what kind of hardware they
use?  Is there some simple trick they're using, or is this really based
on much more advanced hardware than anything I'm aware of?
