“Mindcandy is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Fusecon in an AVC encoded 720p transfer in a number of different aspect ratios… As ambient television and as examples of what the personal computer can accomplish, this is some of the most interesting stuff to come down the pike in a long time. Recommended.” – Blu-ray.com

Today Fusecon and Hornet released their third volume of this computer generated animation series on Blu-ray and DVD. MindCandy Volume 3: PC Demos 2003-2010 is a best-of-the-best look at what imaginative programmers, musicians, and graphic artists can do with an off-the-shelf personal computer. These computer animations, or demos, as they are called, evolved from the early crack intro days of computer piracy and formed an entire underground culture of computer artists pushing the limits of computers at scene parties throughout Europe.

The third edition of MindCandy brings forty of these uniquely poetic real-time animated music videos to the big screen in high definition with a Blu-ray/DVD combo of spectacular audio-visual effects. The 210 minute feature brings a whole new level of entertainment through a journey of colorful visual expressions, electronic music, and animated worlds both lifelike and unreal, all at a smooth 60 frames per second. Also included on the Blu-ray disc are 7 hours of talks from some of the demo scene’s top talent at nVision 2008. MindCandy Volume 3: PC Demos 2003-2010 retails for $21.99 and is available worldwide via Amazon and various on-line distributors.
