Let’s All Chuckle At The Technology Of The 1980s

New Kids On The Block Cassette

The Walkman was a big deal. In 1986, on the first day back from Christmas vacation, it felt like EVERYONE on the school bus had a new Walkmen on their lap. The bus was quiet except for the muffled sounds of ‘Invisible Touch’ and Debbie Gibson’s ‘Lost In Your Eyes’ punching young eardrums.

We’ve really come a long way. Now it’s absolutely possible to have every single song in the world right at your fingertips without having to use a rewind button. Still, there’s something funny — and funny — about the technology of the 1980s.

Here’s some of the best pics that will send you back to the good old days of handheld devices and home gaming.
