The Kid Should See This

Museum of Obsolete Objects: The Quill, The Cassette Tape, and more

We love this 2011 video series, Museum of Obsolete Objects by Germany-based agency Jung von Matt, showcasing once-brand-new technologies that became “lost technical marvels” as they were surpassed by newer inventions. Above: The Quill.

Their videos also feature the typewriter, the cassette tape, a mechanical hand-mixer and many other once well-known objects.

Watch more videos on inventions and how things work.
