Los avances tecnológicos ocurren tan rápido que es casi imposible mantenerse al día. Si le dijera a alguien en la década de 1990 que incluso la gente de hoy estaría enviando mensajes de texto desde sus relojes y viendo la televisión en sus teléfonos, podrían mirarlo como si le hubiera crecido otra cabeza. Y si comparara algunos de los dispositivos modernos de hoy con sus primeras iteraciones, probablemente ni siquiera podría decir qué es qué. ¿Quiere saber cuánto sabe sobre electrodomésticos obsoletos? Siga leyendo para poner a prueba sus conocimientos y ver si puede descubrir para qué se usaron originalmente estos viejos objetos domésticos.

Las primeras tostadoras eléctricas, como la que se muestra anteriormente, que fue construida en 1921, tenían el mismo mecanismo básico que las que usamos hoy en día. Las rebanadas de pan se mantuvieron en una jaula y se empujaron hacia un elemento de calentamiento, que lo hizo crujiente. Y curiosamente, la tostadora fue creada antes de se inventó el pan rebanado; este último no fue un producto de mercado masivo hasta 1928.
