How Many Of You Actually Recognize These Gadgets? Have You Ever Used One?


This isn’t the only object that has been long lost to time.

Technology has made leaps and bounds over the last several years.

It’s safe to say that people from even 20 years ago could have never imagined how far we’ve come today in terms of tech and gadgets.

Back then, things were more difficult without this century’s modern innovation.

For example, there were no streaming devices to listen to free music – only radios, and pirated CDs or tapes, if you swung that way.

The Internet as we know it didn’t exist, and there wasn’t all that information readily available at your fingertips.

Of course, this means that a lot of old inventions have become obsolete, so younger generations have no idea what many of the common tools older generations used are.

While advancing forward in time is always good, and we should be grateful for new innovation, it’s sometimes nice to just let the nostalgia wash over you as you think back to simpler times.

Think of all the items that people used to use that have been phased out.

Take, for example, this tin-like, coin-looking item with a diamond-shaped wire on the end.

Do you know what it is?

It’s an item designed specially to easily insert the thread into the tiny little needle eye for sewing purposes, and it’s called a needle threader.


Similarly, this item is also used for sewing, and it looks like an eraser.

This is called tailor’s chalk, and it’s designed to make markings on the cloth so that sewing arrangements and measurements can be easily made.

This isn’t the only object that has been long lost to time.

Here are some more old objects from decades past that today’s youth will likely not know about.

1. Record Adapters

These interestingly designed products might be confused for fidget spinners today, and even those toys are out of date by 2019’s standards!
