Since the dawn of time, we human beings have made it our mission to make our work quick and ours lives more comfortable. The only way to do that? Harness fire, plow the land, and invent new technology to better accomplish both!

But as outdated technology makes way for new inventions, it’s easy to forget the tools of yesterday. As time marches on, shiny new devices quickly become dusty relics of the past.

That’s why this little quiz is so fascinating. Though these retro objects aren’t ancient by any means, they certainly predate the technology of today. In fact, I bet young kids have no idea what some of these items are!

How many of these vintage devices can you name? Do any of them bring back special memories? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!
