Automan (1982)

Automan (the "Automatic Man") followed the adventures of a police officer and computer programmer named Walter Nebicher (Desi Arnaz, Jr.), who had created an artificially intelligent crime fighting program that generated a hologram (Chuck Wagner) able to leave the computer world and enter reality to help solve crimes. Automan had a sidekick named Cursor, a free-floating, glowing, shifting polyhedron-shaped, mote of energy which could three-dimensionally "draw" and generate physical objects as they are needed, generaly becoming the object in the process.

Many of the groundbreaking computer generated special effects employed in the movie "Tron" were later used in this TV show. Compared to today's technology of course, it all looks very primitive, but back in 1982, this was state of the art!
