You can call them old school or even ancient, but the truth is these inventions have been around as long as dirt. Some of these historical objects are obsolete, whereas others have simply been upgraded over the years. Can you guess the name or use of these objects? Challenge your friends and family members to see who does better!

Did you know?

The first computer weighed almost 50 tons!

It also took up 1,800 square feet of space, making it much bigger than many apartments and houses! It was called the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer, or ENIAC for short. J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly built the ENIAC at the University of Pennsylvania. Construction began in 1943 and was not finished until 1946.
