From pagers to virtual reality, we run down some of the 90’s technology we miss the most
It seems like only yesterday, but the 1990’s are now a staggering 14 years away. The era of Britpop, day-glo and questionable hair choices was also the birthplace of many everyday technologies, seeing the evolution and widespread adoption of mobile phones, satellite television and games consoles, to name but a few. We’ve compiled some of our favourites for a quick trip down memory lane…
Back before mobile phones, pagers were the cool way to keep in touch with your friends and contacts. Small enough to clip onto your belt, they displayed short messages, with upscale versions even coming with modem capability. Now mainly used in hospitals or large government buildings, the pager’s nadir may be gone, but its influence remains strong.
