Apple’s retro IIc computer that was released in 1984 has been obsolete for 30 years, but an NYC-based illustrator has just proven that it is still capable of creating amazing stuff, if you’re willing to put in the time.
Animator Wahyu Ichwandardi unveiled his Apple IIc masterpiece on Twitter by re-creating the latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer in using software from the early 80’s.
Prepare to be blown away:

The entire video took Ichwandardi three weeks to make. TechCrunch reports that he used a bitmap paint program called Dazzle Draw and KoalaPad+ on the Apple IIc computer to draw the video frame by frame.
It took 48 floppy disks to store the entire project that weighed a measly 6MB, which was colossal by 1984 standards. You can watch the new Last Jedi trailer below and see how Ichwandardi’s work compares to the original.
