A cat animated with early computers and second-order differential equations.

In 1968, a group of soviet physicists and mathematicians led by N.Konstantinov created one of the first CG cartoons using BESM-4 computers. This simple clip of a walking cat was created by printing hundreds of cat shaped numerical patterns on paper and photographing them one at a time, a primitive form what would eventually become CGI. Viktor Minahin worked out the differential equations.

Wordless except for the credits and the cat exclaiming "Meow!".
