We are living in time of great technological prosperity. Just thirty or forty years ago people were talking about the gadgets we have today in science fiction stories. That gives us enough reasons not to feel superior because we know, if this progress continues, today’s technology will be funny to future generations.
Alex Varanese is designer who tried to investigate how it would be if somehow gadgets like mobile phones, mp3 players, laptops or pocket-consoles were designed in 70s. The result is impressive collection of photos where you can see how Alex imagined all those things if they were made 40 years ago. I have to admit that there are some designs in this gallery which could be pretty attractive to some people even today. Some of those designs remind me on steampunk-like creations and we all know how steampunk is popular these days.
