I watched a little TV this morning and came across Modern Marvels. I was once again amazed at how much technology has advanced. What I once thought of as so ‘modern’ now simply looks like a relic of history. From the site:

“Take a groovy ride back to the freewheeling days of the 1960s and recall the technological happenings that helped shape the decade. Television went from black and white to color. Satellite broadcasting made coast-to-coast live broadcasts possible. Transistors made radios portable, computers downsized and telephones began switching from rotary to touch-tone. The 60s also brought along the Ford Mustang and other hot wheels. For fun, there was slot car racing, etch-a-sketch, the superball, and lava lamps. The decade gave us quite a technological rush, with the introduction of concert sound, psychedelic light shows and the birth of the rock festival”. (60’s Tech. (2013). The History Channel website.
