An iPad, An Apple II And a Music Video

Panic rocks, even when it’s not about new applications coming out of their offices. They got an email two weeks ago, and they were asked to run the source of a text animation written for a music video on their (now popular) Apple IIe, just to see it if worked and take a few pictures. To do so, they had to load the source code into a “cassette deck”, which wasn’t available.

So what, give up? Nah, they just decided to use an iPad for that. Check out the Panic’s video here the original one after the break, it’s an impressive result.
