Technology: Now meets then

We often hear people say that kids "get" technology easier than adults.

I remember the old computers we had at home, the tapes we used to load programs, the floppy disks that were really floppy. I'm sure my grandparents were probably amazed at the speed with which I could load and play Frogger.

Kids today are described as super-advanced when it comes to understanding new gadgets, so it's interesting to see how they relate to the gadgets that were around before they were born.

In this video, young people were challenged to see if they could figure out how to use some classic gadgets from the 80s.

It's interesting to see their responses, and the time it takes them to figure out what to do.

Are your children quick with technology? Have you ever shown youngsters the old devices you used? What were their reactions? Share with us in the comments below.
