The Vintage T.V. Does Not Have Bunny Ears Or A Remote Control

The reception did not work well on this vintage T.V. in which one probably had to bang on the T.V. In hopes of picking up a clear picture.

Bunny ears or antennas were created so that a clearer reception could be obtained by adjusting the metallic conductors. A television remote control was obsolete back in those day as well, mainly because there were just a few channels. Having to get up to switch the channels manually could be a hassle at times.

Even though the vintage T.V. is consider a classic, this product is also considered to be a form of Flintstone technology due to bad reception and it's manual knob. Very much cherished as a means of connecting to society back in the day.

The Telephone Needed Some Changes

The cord extending from the telephone did not allow it's users to move around much. And the rotary system could be challenging. The vintage style phone is attractive and has an elegant appearance. The mobility use of the vintage phone makes it a Flintstone creation.

The Glorified Bicycle.

This is a very beautiful classic automobile. This antique Benz would not hold up in this era, which makes this car a Flintstone mobile. However the antique Benz is still a step up do to the fact that the Flintstones had to pick up the car and run with force, which probably left blisters on the bottom of their feet.

The Automobile Has Made Great Progress.

Even though automobiles cannot fly like The Jetsons many can drive with intense speed. The automobiles of this era could be a good medium point. Flying cars could create a dangerous hassle.

Do We Really Need Flying Cars?

We may not be where The Jetsons are when cars are concerned, but this is not a bad thing.
