    I had to explain to my kids what cassette tapes were the other day. They were fascinated. For them, Blu-rays, smartphones and internet-everywhere is the norm, just an accepted fact of life.

    I'm wondering if I should force any children I have to experience technology in the order it was available, so to begin with they only have cassette tapes and some vinyl LPs to play around with, plus some truly retro consoles like the Atari 2600... the slowly introduce them to the 8bit computers and consoles, then the Amiga and 16bit era... and then eventually CD, the MP3... would be fun, and also make them appreciate everything a little more, whilst also gaining knowledge of the history of some common technologies over the years, where it all came from and why we have what we have today.

    Children these days have definitely dropping into a world where technology has progressed far enough that they sometimes find it hard to imagine or understand how much we had to do before we got here. The concept of analogue devices like cassette tapes or record player and vinyl disks must really be confusing to a young child these days.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Yeah but make them live in a cave and dress in animal skins first. Then slowly build up towards fire, the wheel, bow and arrow.

    Now you get the idea. Really make them appreciate modern living by the time they reach their teens.

    That will really confuse them! It did me when I first saw one in primary school in the early 80's.
