    Epcot Behind The Scenes Attraction

    OK this is going back to sometime in the 1980's I remeber an attraction at EPCOT. IOT was a behind the scenes tour of their computers. You were ushered in and sat on these benches over looking a control room and a small guy was projected onto the glass.. Anyone remember this???

    Oh yeah! That show inspired a gold-medal winning Math Fair project and interest in learning to program computers.

    Communicore East and West (now Innoventions) housed a number of attractions, including "Backstage Magic", presented by UNISYS. In this show, "Computer Operator Julie and her graphic sidekick I/O take guests on a journey through the history of computers" according to an old guidemap. It ended with a view of the Epcot Computer Central, which supposedly housed all the computers that controlled everything in Epcot Center.

    Also in Communicore East was the Electronic Forum - a big survey center, an Energy Exchange by Exxon exhibit, and Travelport by American Express.

    Communicore West had FutureCom by AT&T (future communications devices); Expo Robotics - a robot that painted for you and 5 robots that spun tops; a Teacher's Center and Epcot Outreach.
