    Very good video. But why did you have a "modern" vhs recorder. Its somewhere from end of 90’s since its a dv and vhs combo.

    You forgot the first CD-Player: Sony CDP-101 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_CDP-101 and the first CD: ABBA – The Visitors

    Dude check your facts. Vhs was cheaper and it had longer playtime put betamax had superior quality. and the year of launch for the walkman and c64 are wrong, either way, good vid

    Was it a black man by the name Jerry Lawson the created the foundation of these video games?

    I still had a Record Player up until I got a Tape deck in 89! Got a Walkman in 90, and a VCR in.93.

    My Casio calculator watch came to a sticky end when I threw it up in the air, it hit the ceiling then I forget to catch it. RIP Casio calculator watch. You say they were banned at school? Not in the UK, that’s where mine met it’s end.

    The C64 did not have 64K RAM. It had a 32K rom and 32K Ram for the user. It even says it on the computers desktop screen.

    had a million cd walkman’s in my day especially in high school

  18. Bernie CDEFG on December 10, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    You forgot the pager or beeper. It was the next best thing to owning a phone which were widely used in the 80s

  19. R Montana on December 10, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    I owned all the things in this video. Programmed an autodialer on my c64 to find carriers, got into lots of systems, went into the IT business and got out my ghetto neighborhood.

    It was the era with a lot more varieties. Now, smartphone swallowed most of gadgets in 80’s and 90’s….

  21. segaNESerGrafxVision64 _ on December 10, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Gameboy is more of 90s not 80s

    I had one of those robot things with the spinning gyro for Nintendo. It was one of the stupidest ideas anyone had. I didn’t get it then and I still don’t get it now.

  24. WileyIsWeird on December 10, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Atari 2600, anyone?

  25. Caddy 1983 on December 10, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Wasn’t the CD player released in the 80’s? I’m surprised that they don’t have the CD listed as one of the top technologies of that decade.

  26. Robbie Fazle on December 10, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    All of this is primitive technology compared to what we have now.

  27. QuZoSsS on December 10, 2020 at 10:29 pm

  29. David Burns on December 10, 2020 at 10:32 pm

  30. Boqoreh on December 10, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Betamax stuck around abit longer in the middle east. I recall Betamax tapes predominating well into 1990-1991

  31. Bulging Battery on December 10, 2020 at 10:33 pm

  32. Adan Parra on December 10, 2020 at 10:34 pm

  33. JL on December 10, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    Why the echo, echo, echo, echo, echo, echo, echo?

  34. Noah Partic on December 10, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    I remember & utilized most of this tech in the 80’s.
    I’ve interacted with boomboxes waaaaay before ’87 & were used & shown in many 80’s films such as "Breakin" & "Beat Street" to name a few. I myself owned a Tiger Game of Simon’s Quest & beat it many times…YAY🥳.
    The past really was important…

    W/O records=No CD’s
    W/O cd’s=No MP3😭

    Need I go on🙄?

  35. Char Char on December 10, 2020 at 10:37 pm

  37. David Colantuono on December 10, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    I want a time machine to go back to my favorite decade of my childhood. While I’ve seen all of these things, I’ve only owned 5 or 6 of them.

  38. Dexmenator on December 10, 2020 at 10:41 pm
