Today’s kids and old technology

So, @thinkgeek posted a link to this video today:

In it, young children try to identify the purpose of old gadgets and electronics.  While the whole video is amusing, at 2:42, there’s a great moment where he shows the kids a rotary telephone.

The kids are all fascinated by the old phone and start playing with it.  I can tell you first hand how amusing this is to watch, since the same thing happened on our set:

Since half of Catching Up takes place in “the past,” we made sure that the Sergeant’s office didn’t have anything post 1985 in it.  Logan had never seen a rotary telephone before, so whenever she wasn’t actually filming she was at the desk playing with it.
