What are demos? People have described them as a sort of real-time computer
music video, but that doesn't cover it at all. Demos are real-time (calculated
by your computer as you watch them) demonstrations of
graphics, music, code and effects. They are not animations! What you see
on your screen is computed by your machine the second before you see it.
Amazing stuff, isn't it? :)

What are intros? Intros are small demos. Not in length or complexity,
but in size. A typical intro is under (or exactly, in some cases :) 64KB
in size. "What on earth can fit in such a small file?" you ask..
Lots of stuff! Intros use sophisticated methods of generating sound, graphics,
textures, 3d objects and more to save space. Watch some of these intros
and prepare to be amazed. We guarantee that when you are done, you'll
think "Wow.. I could never imagine that was possible! Give me more!"
