Into the Lucasfilm archives: Super-8!

Beta vs. VHS are my earliest video memories, so I for one am clearly too young for this whole Super-8 thing. Is it the video equivalent of eight tracks? And what’s with the lame slide projectors?

On the topic of obsolete (or not) kiddie technology, anyone know where I can get hold of some vintage Star Wars View-Master reels? The eBay, it has nothing.
