5 Pieces of tech nostalgia [Infographic]

We all love the latest shiny new tech toy.

Look at all the fuss over the new iPhone – everyone pre ordering it without ever seeing one. Tape 1138088 1920

Today’s infographic is a throwback to the 1980s and 1990s, making “oldies” like me nostalgic for the heyday of these popular gadgets.

Although many of the devices listed below may be confined to your garages or dusty drawers, the influence they had on modern technology is pretty much unsurpassed.

The gadgets of the 80s and 90s were all about taking existing technology and making it more enjoyable while on the go, rather than solely being useful in the home or office. Even if that meant devices that were “portable” in name only, it was a huge step forward.

Devices like the Game Boy, Walkman, early Nokia phones, and other mobile technologies helped lead engineers to solve the problems that would lay the ground for today’s “world in the palm of your hand”.

Improving power consumption efficiency, developing new battery types, reducing size, creating screens that were readable in a variety of light conditions, and even opening up the demand for aftermarket accessories were among these advancements.

Though it is easy to downplay the quaint technologies that came nearly thirty years ago, we can’t ignore that its influence is in the DNA of the devices and digital interactions we encounter every day.

Go back through your closets, dig out your Game Boy, and take a trip back in time to remember the curiosities and comforts of old-school tech!
