KIDS have become so used to operating technology with the touch of their finger or the sound of their voice that it is probably not surprisingly that they struggle to work a computer from the 1970s. It is hilarious to watch, however.
Comedy group The Fine Brothers asked a group of children to try and work a computer that looks nothing modern day technology.
The first hurdle was trying to turn it on.
Eight-year-old Brooke-Monae tries to operate the machine with her voice, when that doesn’t work she tries tapping the screen with her finger.
Some manage to turn the monitor on but fail to realise that they also need to turn it on at the back.
Once the machine is on many comment on how noise it is. None of the children really understand why they need floppy discs either. One of the adults explains that there is no hard drive on the computer.
“So why is it so big?” asks Jayka, 11.
“Where is the mouse” is yet another common question from the children.
The children are also surprised that the computer doesn’t have the internet. Nine-year-old Kacey types ‘Google’ on the screen.
“How do you look up homework?” asks Jayka.
“You go to the library,” the adult explains.
“Who wants to do that,” Jayka replies.
When they are handed a floppy disk most think that it is a CD. They groan at having to turn the computer off and on again in order to load the games on the floppy disk.
“I don’t get it. And I also don’t get the 1970s,” says nine-year-old Tyler.
The children are also not a fan of the green screen.
“It’s green which makes it look ugly,” Jayka says.
While one kid says he would love to have one of these old computers at home most of the other children can’t understand the point of it.
“Three decades ago I would love to have this but now this is just a footstool,” Dylan, 12, says.
“The games are boring, the stuff is boring and the whole thing is boring,” says six-year-old, Lucas.
