Revive your favourite childhood memories with analogue cameras, retro console games and more
These days, nostalgia is king.
How else can you explain figments of our youth getting modern-day resurrections every so often?
Apart from cyclical fashion items like bell-bottom jeans and chokers, the tech scene has also welcomed a bunch of old-school gadgets — all revived and with good measure.
From Tamagotchis to Polaroid cameras, it’s clear from these gems that old is gold.
2. Nokia 3310
The legendary Nokia 3310 has been revived as a modern classic and with a 2-megapixel camera, no less.
While low-tech, the smartphone does come with a few nifty features such as battery life of up to a month on standby, a headphone jack, an FM Radio and even an SD card slot for saving extra music and photos.
Plus, did we mention it’s got 2.4-inch curved colour screen? All the better for users to play the retro Snake game. Available in four bright and cheery colours, the hardy-looking phone does look like it could put a dent in whatever surface it hits.
Unfortunately, the revamped Nokia 3310 won’t be usable here, considering 2G mobile services in Singapore have been terminated.
