I remember my surprise, a couple of years ago, at discovering that the local Vue no longer had any projectionists, and everything was run directly from head office.

The 1K project
What do you get if you record 1000 cars driving the same track, and combine them together? You get art, that's what. Absolutely stunning. (The game is Trackmania Sunrise, by the way)
