In this YouTube video, from The Fine Brothers channel, young kids try to figure out the purpose of the 1980s Sony Walkman.

Like archaeologists looking at mysterious ancient stone tools, the next generation of gadget lovers wonders at that “prehistoric” technology known as cassette tape.

When the children finally understand how the Walkman works, thanks to the help of an adult, they all have one question: “Why would anybody use this instead of an iPhone?” With an emblematic sentence that you would expect to hear from a grownup, a girl concludes: “It is amazing how technology has changed!”
