Today, incorporating physical objects into digital design is a way to create a unique aesthetic or a new perspective on a project. For example, to design the icons for Google's Material Design language, designers cut and folded paper prototypes of the icons before translating them into digital pixels. Similarly, the designers behind the opening sequence of Stranger Things rigged up a manual light-based stencil system to capture the grainy, organic vibe of the credits.
It's easy to forget that there was a time when every identity design or title sequence was made physically, as a recently unearthed photo that shows the making of the 1962 Office de Radiodiffusion Télévision Française logo reminds us.

I wish I wish I knew how they made the original Dr. Who intro from mid-1970's.

Some of them were filmed through a kaleidoscope.
No problem is insoluble, but at Ksp = 2.943×10−25 Mercury Sulphide comes close.
