The Amiga Boing Ball was created as an example of the machines ability. The demo showed a red and white ball bouncing around the screen and reacting with the environment – it bounced off the walls, spun, while multitasking in the background.

Here is the Boing Ball being showcased on the Commodore Amiga 1000 computer:

The Boing Ball demo was featured at the 1984 Winter Consumer Electronics Show in January 1984 and written by Dale Luck and Robert J. Mical (R.J.) during a break at the trade show.

In a time when other computers were only just managing color display, the Amiga was displaying smooth animation in full color. Remember, only the Amiga makes it possible.
