On January 24, 1984, Apple intro­duced the Macin­tosh. And with it a promise that the power of tech­nology, put in the hands of everyone, could change the world. On January 24, 2014, Apple sent 15 camera crews all over the world to show how that promise has become a reality.

From sunrise in Melbourne to night­fall in Los Angeles, they docu­mented people doing amazing things with Apple prod­ucts. They shot over 70 hours of footage — all with the iPhone 5s. Then it was edited and scored with an orig­inal sound­track. Thanks to the power of the Mac and the inno­va­tions it has inspired, an effort that normally takes months was accom­plished in a matter of days.

This Macin­tosh thing came out.” Thirty years ago, the Mac put the power of tech­nology in everyone’s hands, launching a gener­a­tion of inno­va­tors who continue to change the world. This video cele­brates some of those pioneers and the incred­ible impact they’ve made.
