The love of vintage technology and retro visions of the future, most commonly from the mid to late 1900's with special focus on the 80's and early 90's.

Humerously cumbersome, oddly obsolete, or completely pointless and time consuming to use, these devices were often hailed in their time as being modern and futuristic while in retrospect seeming like a large waste of time.

Most often seen (and celebrated) in older movies dealing with cutting edge (for their time) technology, or Futuristic devices.
