Fujitsu Habitat footage on YouTube

Tomoko Kojima (aka Oracle Layza) found some video of very early Fujitsu Habitat interaction (on the FM-Towns) on YouTube:



I’m most struck by the whiplash discrepancy between the music and the action in the first clip. That and the way the Internet continues to cough up nuggets of wonder from the distant past.

Thanks Tomoko!

That’s the real music BTW. I also noticed the editing-out of the region change delay. That’s cheating but was common back then.
