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

Cyberpresse researcher Jean-Christophe Laurence showed a group of modern-day schoolchildren from Quebec various gadgets from the ’80s and ’90s and asked them to guess what they were for. They’re often able to figure out eventually that it’s an older form of a tech that they currently know, but Laurence gets some great, creative responses along the way.

Of a floppy disk: “this goes into an iPod.” Of a ColecoVision game: “a deck of cards.” Of an 8-track player: “Oh! I thought it was a bomb!”
