The percentage of the population that understands the phrase, "Be kind, please rewind," is on the decline, so it shouldn't be as surprising as it is when a group of under-15's mistake a Sony Walkman for a cell phone, a walkie talkie, and a boom box.

After figuring out what the alien device is—"Ooh, like in the movies?"— the kids fumble their way through cassettes, 90's-style headphones, and the pressing of actual buttons.

"I feel bad for people who lived in the 90's, I really do," a nine-year-old says.


So clutch your mixtapes close—this is the future, and it ain't analogue.
