Groovy 1970s Consumer Tech

I'm sure this will bring back a few memories for some of us...
Perhaps more than any decade prior, the 1970s played host to an explosion in consumer electronics gadgets that changed how we educate, entertain, calculate, and communicate. Rapidly dropping prices for transistors, integrated circuits, and microprocessors sparked an electronics revolution that gave birth to innovations such as the first personal computer, the first electronic digital wristwatch, the first pocket calculator, and the first commercial video game. In this slideshow, we'll look at those devices and others as we explore consumer tech's progress and influence during the years 1970 through 1979.

Still have the camera in perfect working order. Like new. No film.

I should add it was my grandfathers camera.
Too bad the film is no longer available. It would be a great addition to some of us even in this digital world.

I used to love the CB. A mate of mine had a kick arse base station and the rest of us all had CB's in the cars.

Used to 'eyeball' some users and if they looked as good as the sounded - there was a bit of car park 'action' to be had

But just like the internet, there were some users better of remaining a 'cute voice'.

Old school trolling at it's best - Side band users were always the best biters.
