Guests from the past. Top 10 gadgets and devices in retro style
Amazing we humans are creatures! There are so many new, unknown, unknown, untested things in the world, and we are constantly drawn to the things we already know. That’s why retro design is popular. Here are a dozen of the most interesting gadgets and devices in retro-style, and we will tell in this review!
Modern mobile phones have dimensions of five, and even more times smaller than the phones of twenty years ago. That’s to give people a sense of security when they hold a mobile phone in their hands, and an iPhone dock called Retro Brick iPhone has been created, giving it the shape of a mobile phone from the nineties.
The digital TVDRS Tape player will remind us of the times when we listened to music using audio cassettes – paradoxically inconvenient media. And also about how we twisted the tracks, putting the cassette on the pencil (thus saving batteries). Just now, in such a simple way, you can charge TVDRS Tape batteries.
Everything is simple and clear. The device called Gold Retro Handset is an external handset that can be connected to the iPhone to talk in the old manner.
The French company Lekki exploits our nostalgic love for old mobile phone models. It produces copies of cult apparatuses that have long been discontinued, adding to them some modern features, for example, the ability to use the Internet.
Another unusual docking station for the iPhone. This time, in the form of an old landline phone. Retro Rotary iPhone Dock is a charger for the device from the corporation Apple. But you can talk about it – just pick up the phone when someone calls you.
Philco PC Steampunk Computer
A completely modern computer Philco PC looks like it was created in the 50s of the twentieth century (of course, if then there were personal computers). It was created on the basis of the 1954 Philco Predicta TV, which added a system unit and input devices in a similar style.
Retro lovers will find a real outlet in a USB Typewriter typewriter! Especially when you consider that this is an external keyboard for an iPad tablet computer.
Such devices found perhaps people of middle and above age. The lamp clock has long disappeared from our shelves. But, nevertheless, their new version was released a couple of years ago. Moreover, it does not need to adjust the time – it is set initially, and then adjusted using the GPS module.
The Rolleiflex Mini Digital camera, which takes pictures with a resolution of 5 megapixels, is a visual copy of the camera from the German company Rollei, produced in the 1920s. The Rolleiflex Mini Digital also has a 1.1-inch digital screen.
Typewriters are a prototype of modern laptops. This idea was decided to develop by the creators of the concept of the mobile computer Valentine Notebook, made on the basis of the cult typewriter Valentine, produced in the 60-70s of the twentieth century.
