[ibvkryot] Toy computer output

Output modes for a toy computer:

  1. Text
  2. Indented text
  3. Raster graphics
  4. Vector graphics, with touchscreen zoom
  5. 3D graphics as a triangle mesh. Touchscreen to rotate the object
  6. Animation, reactive to keystrokes to display the next frame
  7. Animation as a generated movie, playing no faster than the specified frame rate, but possibly slower if the frames don't get generated fast enough
  8. Sound waveform
  9. MIDI

Such a toy computer can be mocked up by software running on a regular computer.
