At Shoshinkai 1994, Nintendo demonstrated their then-upcoming console, the Virtual Boy. To demonstrate its stereoscopic 3D effects, they made a brief demo featuring one of their most recognizable characters, Mario.


A rendered image of Mario appeared under the Virtual Boy logo, and then the logo flew towards the viewer letter by letter.[1][2] The demo was also apparently hard-coded onto the Virtual Boy prototypes.
