Over the last 100+ years, technology has certainly evolved in incredible ways. From HP, this infographic lists out several influential inventions dating back to 1900, along with what the price tag was then, and what each of these pieces of technology would cost today. The oldest item on this infographic is the Kodak Brownie, a camera that originally sold for $1, which would be $31.53 today. There are several video gaming consoles listed on this as well.
The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was originally sold for $179, which would equate to costing $417.74 today, which is more than what a new Nintendo Switch would cost! One of the largest increases due to inflation on this infographic would be the 1977 release of the RCA VBT200 VCR, which sold back then for $1,300.00. Today, that VCR would cost you $5,672.82! How many of these pieces of technology have you owned over the years?
