This projector is probably about a hundred years old. Imagine people sitting in a dark room, watching footage of the first world war or the San Francisco world fair of 1915. They would’ve been amazed about what they saw, about the possibility to relive things without travelling back in time. It was difficult to get footage, it was difficult to buy a projector and it was difficult to operate one.

Now look at smartphones and think of what hundred years can do to mankind!
