Description

This film captures what is possibly an early video game in which the user performs syntactic analysis and reduction analysis, "adding dominoes until a complete structure is obtained." Also includes footage of the S-C 4020 (Stromberg-Carlson film recorder) using simple animation of white-on-blue characters and line drawings.
