By around 1982, arcade games and video games, which had been a major industry since the 70s, saw a major crash. It was far from the potential it has reached today due to low-quality games and the rise of home computers. It was finally revived by Nintendo in the mid-80s, when it received high praises (and sales) outside of Japan.
Remember the black screen and green font computers your parents had at the office? Yes, Kipp does too. Personal Computers started becoming fixtures in the households in the 80s.
But, in Kipp’s eyes, the real tech icons of the 80s are the Walkman and the Boombox.
