Can you recognize this technology of 1966?

Guess what these gadgets and machines would do!

 

Technology sure has changed over the years. Most of the following items are probably in your pocket right now — or at least orderable through the device in your pocket.

Of course, some machines just are not used as much anymore.

We gathered some advertisements for cutting edge technology. Well, it was cutting edge in 1966. See if you can guess what everything is!

The only one I got wrong was number 1. Are you sure it’s not a toaster oven? A lot of knobs and a very brown turkey🦃

I'm 62 so I lived in the 60's and we did not have microwaves back then. I think their information is wrong. Home microwaves came out in the 80's I believe.

Late 1970s. My brother was born in December of '77. Not long thereafter, my parents attended a costume-themed Christmas party. They won a microwave as a door prize. My mother thought it was the neatest thing ever, she used it to warm up my brother's formula and food.

They came out in the 60s. We saw them at the World's Fair. If you see old reruns of shows like The Price is Right or Let's Make a Deal, you'll see the Amana Radar Range. Those were microwaves

wrong, the first microwaves were in the 60s, but they were MUCH larger than they are today.
