NewsHow Pixar Used Moore's Law to Predict the Future PinstaffTerrence Dorsey17-Apr-13 11:56 
We know what Moore’s Law is and how it works, but not many people reflect on why it exists. Because inventors, visionaries, engineers — whatever you want to call them — have to arrive at each level before they can even imagine a way to the next one.. and then create it. That’s how Pixar and its first film Toy Story — the first feature-length computer-animated film — became a reality. The secret was Moore’s Law, and not just in the technical way one would think. The enabling idea of our vision was computation, of course, but the idea of computation alone would not have gotten us far.... Because we — Catmull, I, and our colleagues — conceived the notion of the first completely digital movie almost four decades ago. It took 20 years to realize that dream with Toy Story, but Moore’s Law is what gave us the confidence to hang on for those two decades.
On a long enough timeline, the technology catches up to the dreams.
