See Obsolete Technology Come Back To Life In This Beautiful Collection Of Animated Photographs

Modern devices like smartphones, computers, thumbdrives, and music players were not born the way we see them today. They are the result of many years of work and countless generations of more or less successful products that allowed manufacturers to prototype new ideas and technologies. They're a thing of the past now, long-forgotten relics that gather dust in the darkest corner of our attics.

Jim Golden, a talented photographer from the United States, decided to dig them up and picture for the very last time to show us the heritage of technology we use on our daily basis. The project is called "Relics of Technology" and features many obsolete objects like video game cartridges and typewriters. Golden did not only take pictures of them, but also went one step further and brought them to life with fantastic animated GIFs. With this creative and beautifully executed idea, he helps us understand what those devices looked like as well as how they worked.

Check out Golden's collection of relics of technology below. Some of them were assembled into patterns that create aesthetically pleasing compositions and bring some crazy good paintings from the 1960s to mind.
