25 Years: Computer Graphics has Come a Long Way

I used to play the original Pole Position on my first computer, an Atari 800 XL, but that was in 1987, and even then, Pole Position looked old. 25 years after it was released, we are but a few steps away from photorealism. Next up: brain-computer-interfaces, physical feedback, neural feedback. How many years will it be?
