Gizmos and Gadgets-Inventions of the Century!
Look at where we have come. Has technology made us lazy? I believe in some ways it has, but we know our minds are working well!
I am making this hub to show you all some of the gizmos and gadgets that have been made in the last 50 years.
As you can see, when speaking of gadgets, I was thinking of Albert Einstein. I thought these photographs of him were magnificent! The link where there are more is below.
Scroll down and check out some of these neat inventions.
Kodak Instamatic 100
Wow, what a camera in 1963. You didn't have to load the film yourself, it came in a sealed holder. Kodak came up with quite the gizmo here.
Timex Sinclair 1000
The smallest computer! It was released in 1982 and a whole 1 KB of ram. You would have a hard time with the keys, but everyone still had to have one of these gadgets.
One of the funniest one's I have seen!
Every kid had one of these game systems when they first came out. I recall playing "pong" for hours on end.
1954 brought the radio into your pocket. This gadget was made by Texas Instuments and was a big profit earner. The first version of the Walkman!
In 1972 the first state-of-the-art LED watch hit the market. It was the Hamilton Pulsar and cost was $2100. The first ones were solid gold. They did get the prices down to around $260. Still a very expensive watch for 1972.
