The Wright Brothers are the first to achieve powered, manned flight. Although the flight only lasted for 12 second and only went 120 feet, it solidified the Brothers' place in history and changed the way the world communicated forever.
FIRST was produced in partnership with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and leading experts at the Smithsonian to recreate the Wright Brothers’ first flight in 1903. AMD provided cutting-edge, unreleased graphics chips (the Fury X -- code name “Fiji”) to create the piece with the utmost photorealistic fidelity. The piece got great acclaim from prominent publications such as the Financial Times
, LA Business Journal, and Fortune Magazine.
