When A 13-year-old From 2009 Uses A Walkman For A Week

Here's what happens when you give a 13-year-old from 2009 a Sony Walkman—the tape kind—and ask him to figure it out without any outside help: incredible confusion.

To the kid's credit, he was able to deduce that the tape had two sides (took him three days) and that you could switch between two kids of tapes fairly easily. He was also given weird looks on the street and allowed to listen to music in class because of his teachers' nostalgia.

But in the end, which did he like better: his Walkman or his iPod? The iPod, of course, except for the fact that the Walkman had two headphone ports for easy music sharing. [BBC via Engadget]
