Didn't mean to overlook Stuart Hunt's work with the ITK family of machines (as both Dave Pickett and
I mentioned, the Millennium II was awfully nice) and the SCand'al, TWiKi (capitalization?) and Clearview
advancements.  And of course the C-Reality.  Which as mentioned might have been the pinnacle of
CRT technology, though I'm not sure a C-Reality at HD would look as good as a well-tuned Millennium
II at the same resolution.

And Dave Walker's machine, the CineGlyph (which morphed into the Nova).  
These all were amazing exercises in technology.
