Dick Van Dyke became a computer animation enthusiast after purchasing a Commodore Amiga in 1991 at the age of 66. He learned how to create 3D graphics and is credited with the creation of 3D-rendered effects used on Diagnosis: Murder and The Dick Van Dyke Show Revisited. Mr. Van Dyke has displayed his computer-generated imagery work at SIGGRAPH, a special interest group computer graphics conference that promotes the creating and sharing of computer graphic techniques. Today he continues to work with LightWave 3D… At the age of 95. I always knew Dick Van Duke was amazing, ever since I saw Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang. What I didn’t know was how much of a life long learner he is. From now on I am going to relay this story to anyone who tells me technology is the domain of the young. Here is a person who didn’t even start working with a computer until he was 66.
