This technical demo for Nintendo Virtual Boy, also known as the “Dolpin Demo”, picks up a theme which was also used in tech demos for other Nintendo systems: a scene showing dolphins and water effects.

A few dolphins are swimming on their sides, and water is shown as if you are looking at a side view of rippling water within a transparent bathtub. It is also showing a 3D beach scene where the water looks like it is coming in from the horizon and in another segment a few dolphins jump out of the ocean into the face of the viewer.

This demo was shown on E3 1995 and Winter CES in 1995, where it could be viewed alongside a number of other Virtual Boy demos in a darkened room on big screens using special 3D specs to achieve a 3D effect similar to the Virtual Boy’s.
