What Are the Latest New and Cool Electronic Gadgets?
October 20, 2010
I knew my teaching career had crossed over into new territory when a student asked if he could go outdoors to recharge his solar powered calculator. As with most technology, that seems very tame and outdated today. What with iPads, iPods, Kindles, iPhones, and worldwide wireless access to so many devices, I wonder why people even bother to speak to each other face to face. Can you remember when Dick Tracy’s two-way wrist radio was the most ridiculous gimmick in popular fiction?
I asked my 10-year-old granddaughter if she had ever made a tin-can telephone. She wasn’t totally sure what a tin can was.
Would you like to guess what we’ll see next? We’ll probably see it on a very tiny screen.
