The technology has been leaping with a huge pace. Within a short period we noticed changes in the technology of gadgets we used. from old film camera to DSLR, an old CRT Television to a smart LED TV.
1. Old CRT Televison:
The earliest version of the CRT was invented by the German physicist Ferdinand Braun in 1897 and is also known as the Braun tube. The CRT televison we first noticed was the tuner tevelsion that would we were able to tune like a radio to find out TV channels. The first TV channel in nepal was Nepal TV with slogan Communication for Development (विकासको लागी संचार) in 1985. From 1975 to 2001, the number of televisions per 1,000 people increased from 0 to 8, which has surely increased now after 13 years time.
2. Tunner Radio
It can be hard to say when exactly people first started listening to the radio in Nepal. But evidence suggests that people used to listen to radio before the first radio station was even established in Nepal. The first radio station was established in 1950 which was ‘Radio Nepal’.
The radio became popular in elite circles in Nepal too. However, without the ruler’s assent, nobody was allowed to have a radio set. In July 1946, Prime Minister Padma Shamser Rana declared that people could have personal radios. Until 1995 Radio Nepal was the only radio station to broadcast in Nepal.
Here we are talking about the camera that used 35 mm Film. An image shot is 36×24 mm in the most common “full-frame” format. A roll of film which had around 30 to 35 frames to shoot according to the which company film you buy were all a one time shot. The negatives were then presented to the a studio for the real image to come out.
4. Hand Game Console
The increasing trend of handheld consoles such as the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita has diminished the use of old fashioned hand held consoles which we usally call Brick Game. I remember being the best in my circle of friends. The Brick game console developed to be a 99 in 1 or even 999 in 1 game console. Even though we can play the brick game in our smartphones its not that fun to play as it used to be before.
