Technological Revival

The technological revival concept, which can also be called technological reminiscence, consists in using the technology of today to bring back to life the technological contents of yesterday.

As a matter of fact, the vintage multimedias contents are relatively easy to digitize, so that they can, then, being downloaded (NB: respect of the royalties)

EX: Setting on line on Internet, some old television programs.

  • To connect a technological system of yesterday with a system of today.

EX: To connect a video game console from the early generations (such as the Nintendo Entertainment System) on a video projector, a plasma screen...
