Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

not limit to gadgets like phones and stuff. anything uses electricity counts.

 

mine is a mitsubishi electric split aircon, manufactured in july of 1999. still working, despite the fan makes a noise louder than a alarm clock.

apart from that, is a sandisk clip mp3 player made in 2009. with 2 colour oled display and sd card slot. still not used to listen to music on my phone.


why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!

I got a door bell from the 1950s-1960s.


Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

 

Pyo.

Actually not sure. I'd say my PS2 from like 2007 but the disc drive on that shit the bed, so maybe my TV from late 2008.

I'm getting a fat PS2 in soon so that'll be the oldest in active use, probably from 2001.

 

EDIT: Just thought about it, technically if we're counting cars as devices, then my car's the oldest. It was manufactured in July 2003, for reference. From there, the next car on was built in November 2016.

Story says some of the ceiling lamps in our house are from late 1880s, some of the wiring is the original from that time too because the way they installed it makes it very difficult to replace (told by electricians).

 

We also have an old TV from the 50s but it doesn't works anymore plus it uses 110V instead of the 240 we have, apparently someone plugged it in at some point and the high voltage killed it.

I've still got my fridge freezer that I bought back in 2003, still going strong. My stove/oven is from 2006.

 

I've still got a Wii from around 2007, doesn't get used much any more though.

 

My mediaserver is based on the AMD FX platform from around 2010 onwards... although this current iteration of it was built around 2013 and had minor upgrades over the last 6yrs. My controller for my gaming PC is from 2010 and still works perfectly.

 

My tablet is the nVidia Shield K1 from circa 2016

 

But I think my current oldest piece of tech is a food processor that my mum gave me, it's hers from the late 70's or early 80's and still works.

 

I'm pretty sure some of the wiring in my house dates back to the 1950's.

I still play NES and SNES from time to time, so that should answer that.  Regularly, it'll be my Wii or N64.


Currently focusing on my video game collection.  Here's what I got so far.

Currently Playing:  

  • New Super Mario Bros - DS
  • Persona 5 - PS4
  • Splatoon 2 - Switch
  • Super Mario Maker 2 - Switch

Just beat:

(will be reset at the beginning of each month)

 

  • River City Girls - Switch

 

How many games I'm needing:

  • DS: 53
  • Wii: 41
  • 360/PS3: 84
  • 3DS: 60
  • Wii U: 13
  • PS Vita: 34
  • PS4: 20
  • Switch: 17

The oldest devices that I currently use would be my original xbox and a dell inspiron 530s. I don't remember the model but I use to daily drive a older hp pocket pc for a while before I ended up losing it in a move.

my son uses my old original gameboy, it is from the launch year, so it is quite old. 

 

actually looks quite good still, took good care of it, however after a couple of months with him, it does look a bit worse.

I actually have a DX4 PC in my house, I only currently use it for NES games as an emulator or so, It's so old that the DX4's weigh (metal) price is more than it's actual selling price, And Bruh, that PC barely holds itself with a win 98

The original models tended to have problems with the disc reader, otherwise known as the infamous Disc Read Error. Came across this myself in the Fat model. On the other hand, my Slim model has been quite reliable. (Just need a decent hdmi converter).

Need to change that wiring before it burns the house down.  I have a house made in 1923 and since electricians are part of the bulldozer bandwagon too i had to remove and route the new wire myself. Those old cloth back wires were insulated with rubber. Once the rubber wears off the cloth catches on fire. 

 

That tv broke because 240 is insane for anything other than a device that runs 2 things at once.  220/240v uses 2 hots off phase of each other to save the need for a Neutral. Modern 240v has to have a neutral with it, because modern engineers realize how insane people are.

Back in the old days of red lasers. They couldn't see thru the dust.  Hence the improvement to bluray. The biggest joke is if the inventer of the cd player used blue light then blu ray would have already been invented by the time dvd came out.

No. Most of the world uses single phase 240V, poster is simply not in the USA but for some reason got a TV that was meant for there.
