Peter Hickman's STOS column

1 July 1991

“We have one real program now, but wow what a program it is! Have you ever looked at those brilliant demos with the 3D shapes made out of different coloured balls?

I have and always wondered how they could calculate the positions of the balls that quickly, but then the secret was revealed - THEY CHEAT! If you pre-calculate the position of the balls for every time they will be plotted you can store the values in memory and get away with murder!” – Pete Hickman
