Children checking out old gadgets

The following video has been around for a few weeks, but I simply couldn't resist posting it. As you'll see, it's a video (in French,but with English subs) of children contemplating a ton of vintage gear including the Game Boy, a Colecovision cartridge, and several sizes and shapes of computer discs. Their reactions -- especially if you were alive when most or all of these gadgets were the cutting edge -- is pretty incredible.
