Thirty year old gadgets already antiques.

Those of us who have been around for a while would recognize a floppy disk or an 8-track player if we saw them. What about the iPod generation? A group of researchers took a collection of old gadgets from the 80s and 90s and showed them to a group of Quebec kids. They asked the youngsters to guess the function of such gadgets as a floppy disk, an 8-track player and a rotary phone. The results are on this video. Enjoy!

  2. Bob,

    It seems to be that technology is moving faster, yet each generation knows so little about the previous. As kids, I think we knew more about the inventions of the past that were no longer in use then the kids of today know about our stuff. It’s ironic that with a generation that has so much information at their fingertips via the Internet, that their frame of reference still seems to be shorter than ours. I’m not necessarily talking about kids as young as the one in this video, but teenagers who don’t seem to have a clue about anything that predates them.
