Old timey photos blow my mind (52 Photos)

Sometimes I look at photos like these and I feel like I’m staring at pics of dinosaurs — it just feels surreal.

    #3 Nikola Tesla, the man who brought us AC current, radio, x-rays, and remote control, just to name a few. He was so far ahead of his time, that today he would still be on the cutting edge of technology.

    Robber Baron JP Morgan funded his early work in wireless transmission. When he found out Telsa was working on a way to supply the world with electricity without wires, at a cost too cheap to meter, he cut all funding off and led a disinformation campaign to paint Tesla as a lunatic.

    If you take time to find out who this man was, what he accomplished and what he proposed was possible, you will truly be amazed.

    #12 : I remember that! I had one, mine was a kit. I started saving for it when they came out with the ZX80 which was white. You could buy the black ZX81 in either kit form or pre-assembled. Shortly there after, Sinclair Research (British company) signed a deal TIMEX (the watch company) and mass manufactured the Timex Sinclair 1000. (Same exact machine) It was the first $99 computer, you'd plug into your television, and it was black and white. It has a whopping 2K of memory (2,000 characters max) and no hard drive. There was a cable to connect it to a standard tape cassette recorder to save your programs. The 16K memory expansion module (plugged into the back) cost as much as the computer did. About a year later, they came out with the Timex Sinclair 2000. It cost about $200, was silver, had a tactile keyboard was twice as wide, and displayed text and graphics in color on your TV.
