Kids React to an Old Computer

This video is rather long …. but kind of fun.

Kids sit down in front of an old computer and are asked to do different tasks, starting with “turn it on”. 🙂

Although I think that a few of these kids are a bit over-the-top in their reactions, (hamming for the camera?), in general their responses are quite engaging.

One child looks for the mouse (not invented yet), they lament over no internet, they are perplexed by the whole ‘command’ thing, and they mistake a floppy disk for a CD.

My favorite point ….. that it would take 850 of these old computers to equal the power of a single iPhone.

We’ve come a long way.

    It’s incredible how far computers have come. I remember my commodore Amiga was powerful with … One Megabyte of RAM.

I'd love to hear what you think!
