Heather Christiansen Technology Timeline

  • VHS

    I remember my mom making me watch all the credits at the end of a movie so she had more time to get things done. The video was grainy.
  • Rewinder Machine

    Rewinder Machine
    One of my siblings broke the VHS rewinder machine. All of us kids got in so much trouble and had to stay in our room for the rest of the day.
  • DVD

    When DVDs first came out, I remember my dad saying how nice it would be to not have to rewind videos anymore.
  • Projector

    My 4th grade teacher taught all of her math on the overhead projector. When she cleaned it off all the colors would blend together.
