Kids Guessing The Use Of Old Technologies

January 7, 2011


This is a little video of a group of French [edit: French-Canadian] kids being handed pieces of old technology from the past 30 years and trying to determine what the hell they are. Objects include a Game Boy, old Coleco Vision cartridge, 8-track player, record player, floppy disks of various sizes, and an old rotary phone. I'm not gonna lie, the kids fail pretty hard. Which is weird considering I feel like MY generation is at least aware of the technologies of yesteryear. But maybe that's just us. Or -- OR -- maybe this is just French-Canadian kids. Just remember, kids: "those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
BOOSH -- somebody's glad they saved their old Betamax player!

Hit the jump for three-and-a-half minutes of poor guessing.

Today's Schoolchildren Guess What '80s and '90s Technology Does

Thanks to ChuckNasty, who had an 8-track player installed in his new car because he likes to kick it oldschool. Really? Or is it because you're a cheap-ass and refuse to throw away all your old tapes?
