Kids React To Old Computers

by Robert Seth on May 27, 2014

This is a great video of how kids react to old computers.  Thanks Fine Bros for posting this!

Do you remember what it was like to use a computer in the 1970’s?  It was a different experience, that’s for sure!

In this video we get to see the delightful reactions of kids from today, reacting to old computers.  This video brings back lots of old memories for me.  When these computers came out, I was waiting with baited breath until I could afford one.  Little did any of us know where the computer industry was going to go.  I love the statistic mentioned in the video that it would take over 800 old computers to equal the computing power of just one smartphone from today.  Go technology!  Don’t you just love it?

I went from wanting one of these, to having one, to having several, and finally to building them myself.  It has been such a fun trip!

As I watch these kids react to old computers I can only imagine how I’d feel if I was a kid today.  Some of these kids are a bit speechless when asked what these computers could be used for or if they would want one.  Personally, I can’t imagine not having the perspective I do now.  In my lifetime, we’ve pretty much gone from no computers or internet, to where we are now.  I feel very blessed to have been a part of that and actually been there when it was all happening.

What has your experience with computers been?  Have you ever built one or seen the insides?  I’d love to hear what your life has been like growing up with, or just living with computers.  Please leave a comment and share!
