How the new generation reacts to old technology

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - Growing up, most of us were obsessed with mix tapes, Walkmans and Ataris.

But technology is fleeting and today, those gadgets have been replaced with things like flash drives and Xboxes.

We were inspired by a viral video on YouTube that a viewer sent to me, called "Kids React" to Walkmans, produced by the Fine Brothers, but also wondered were these kids acting at all?

So, we decided to get our own reaction from San Diego kids..

We talked to a dozen students in grades first through fifth, including my own eight-year old twins, to get their take on four old gadgets that I used to use, when I was their age.

[WATCH the story and see the students’ reactions in the above video.]

We also want to thank all of the kids, ages six through 10, from Willow Grove Elementary School in the Poway School District for taking us down memory lane and making us realize, how old we are.
