Over the years, technology and the development of gadgets have been so profound. Think about it, 20 years ago would you have thought we’d be sending cars into space? We have most definitely surpassed what anyone could have imagined back then. It’s quite a lot to wrap your head around.
Modern innovation has changed so dramatically. Take for example music streaming – back then all we had was the radio or cassette taps which eventually evolved into CDs and then MP3s.
There was no “internet” and information was not easily accessible. What we take for granted now was a long excursion to the library, just for a little bit of information! We have the world at our fingertips and it’s only just the beginning.
Of course, this means that a lot of old inventions have become obsolete, so younger generations have no idea what many of the common tools older generations used are.
What a Time to be Alive
As developments occur we advance, and that’s a good thing. We should definitely be more appreciative of what we have now and the ease in obtaining it. Sometimes, we just need a small nostalgic reminder of just how far we have come and how much we truly have to be grateful for.
Lets take a moment to think back to times that were simpler as we have a look at some of the gadgets from yesteryear.
