Modern photo of technological dark age

This photo, which was taken from a Gizmodo article called *[The Future of Charging Gadgets?](*, is soon going to be one of those old, humorous photos that make you think, "Damn -- we were in the dark ages back then." Early versions of new technology often invoke such a response in me. In fact, this photo pretty much already looks the part of a vintage tech shot, and would look perfectly in place next to photos of doctors using leeches, punch-card computers, and brick cell phones with shoulder straps.
