Great video from the 70′s… Same technology today can be found at the nearest dollar store.
And to imagine... The kid in the video with the glasses, Elliot was me back in the day; but my TRS-CoCo was the original, not CoCo3.
In 1969, they were right on target with future technology; just terminology is a bit off.

quiz, Technology, vintage
…these ancient antique vintage technology artifacts of the ’80s?
If you have the opportunity, quiz your students (or even yourself!) to see if they can identify and describe the functions of the above images (extension: compare and contrast the images in a Venn Diagram!) I am sure that you will be amused on the responses you may receive.
Please respond to this blog with your results! I will tweet the answers tomorrow. Good luck!
