We know that most of the technologies we have used in the past have now been eclipsed by the amazing products we use today, from the simplest smartphones to the most advanced supercomputers. We all might laugh today when we think about “prehistoric” items like floppy disks or 8-bit games, but stuff like that made our life pretty easier and a lot more fun. They were true lifesavers back in the day, but new technologies will never know them. Or will they?
There’s a new trend that might help save the nerdiest memories of all: the retro gadgets market, where people can buy and sell old technologic products. The exchange of these items might be saving the beginning of the digital era from general oblivion, making us remember “dinosaurs” like the first Apple computer or the Atari 2600.
Sure, we cannot deny that the advances in technology and its design are amazing, but it’s always fun to recall the last 50 years, which registered the most overwhelming evolutionary period ever seen on our planet. Remembering the old days brings us back to a time when having a computer or a game console was awesome!
While we may laugh at the true geeks that are always looking for antique technologies, we must admit we love to remember these old gadgets. Here’s a fun list of amazing vintage technologies that conquered a special place in our hearts and at the auctions. Some of them are even worth small fortunes, so who knows? The old gadgets lying around your house might make you rich.
