Absolutely amazing to see the confluence of all these technologies more than 45 years ago. The video is quite long, but you can skip around to see early incarnations of technology that is now ubiquitous.

"The Mother of All Demos is a name given retrospectively to Douglas Engelbart's December 9, 1968, demonstration of experimental computer technologies that are now commonplace. The live demonstration featured the introduction of the computer mouse, video conferencing, teleconferencing, hypertext, word processing, hypermedia, object addressing and dynamic file linking, bootstrapping, and a collaborative real-time editor."
