If you’re like me and grew up in the 80s and 90s, that green dot matrix screen of the original Game Boy probably holds a special place in your heart. Despite only being around 25 years old, in the realm of technology that is truly ancient. Kids React To is a YouTube series that showcases several kids being introduced to technology of the past. Past examples include kids being shown a rotary telephone and asked if they knew what it was.
This particular episode focuses on the Game Boy, which some kids immediately recognize as the great-grand-father of the Nintendo 3DS they’ve been exposed to. Others can’t seem to focus on anything except the fact that the screen remains green even when you turn it off. Either way, it’s interesting to see kids react to a device that started the handheld craze for Nintendo, 25 years ago.
