iPods in 1977

“What would you do if you could travel back in time? Here’s what I’d do: grab all the modern technology I could find, take it to the late 70′s, superficially redesign it all to blend in, start a consumer electronics company to unleash it upon the world, then sit back as I rake in billions, trillions, or even millions of dollars.

“I’ve learned that there is no greater design element than the anachronism. I’ve learned that the strongest contrast isn’t spatial or tonal but historical. I’ve learned that there’s retro, and then there’s time travel.”

- Alex Varenese

    It was old hat in 1977. It was actually invented by John Lennon in 1967. Here is the proof:

    Well, who knows if the iPod or the iPad isn’t something bring up from 2077 by some time-traveller?
