One second...

90's Tech was so awesome!!!!

Who doesn't remember the days when Discmans and MiniDisc players we hot property? I was a real techno geek back in the day and the height of my excitement was when Sony launched a £300 Discman with LCD remote and 45 second anti-skip technology. Back then i thought ' How can this ever be topped!!'


Silly me, Technology was always going to get wayyyyyyy better so and to celebrate my love for all things gadgets here is my first of probably many designs for the Geek Chic Challenge


I hope you enjoy

This is wonderful. I had a mini disc player and I had never even heard of one before my mom got me one for Christmas one year. Took me a while to figure it out, but it was pretty handy!

Going back further, to the mid 70s, there was this. The world's first "digital" camera.

"Here are some specs: The 8 pound camera recorded 0.01 megapixel black and white photos to a cassette tape. The first photograph took 23 seconds to create.

To play back images, data was read from the tape and then displayed on a television set:"
