Room 404 with Melissa Pierce

Creator of theaward winning film series Life In Perpetual Beta and (in her words) hundreds of other less well known good ideas, it’s time for Melissa Pierce to join in with the increasingly popular Room 404. Which old gadgets, techs and principles would she like to see brought back into the modern world, and should anything we use today be banished to the room of things that time forgot?

The TRS-80
The corded telephone
The difference engine
Reel to reel magnetic tape
GPS voices
