About This Quiz

I need you to go back with me! Back to the future!

The 20th century truly was "the future" in terms of the technological advancements that were made in that time; especially compared to previous centuries. This time frame was not only the birthplace of brand new technologies, but it was also when older technologies were refined and improved upon in various industries; like transportation (automobiles) and military (firearms). Three decades out of this time frame that stand out above the rest are the 1950s, the 1960s and the 1970s; and that is why this quiz is going to be focusing on these three important decades.

Out of these three decades, the '50s obviously serves the role of a more transitional period from the early 1900s. Prototype technologies that had been created earlier were now being taken seriously and being released for public use. Also, humanity set its sights on the stars once again, ushering in the infamous "Space Race." The '70s (and to a lesser extent the '60s) focused more on electronics and digital technology; such as better personal computers and mobile phones.

So, are you a technological mastermind? Then c'mon, let's go back in time and see if you can name all of this iconic technology from the past.
