Yes I do realise the video is quite a few years before Collin was born, but you have to admit, the similarity is striking!

I am guessing Intel charged an arm and a leg for that custom mask ROM?

not really. mask roms were pretty cheap as they ran in volume. the first mask roms only had one metal layer. it was just a matter of creating the mask with the via's. if there is a via it is a 0 if there isnon it is a 1. so you only paid for the making of one mask and the rest was mass production.
of course this is not something you do for 5 parts ....
