Peter Swanson Clip 1: Technology of the Future
Collection: Queens Museum Oral History Project Records at the Archives at Queens Library: Peter Swanson
Description: Swanson describes about how fifty years back, push button phones were still a novel technology that was intriguing to everyone. People would line up at exhibits at the 1964 World's Fair and make pretend calls just to try out pushing buttons on the new phones. No one could have known that in fifty years, people would be carrying cellular phones in their pockets as a very ordinary thing. Swanson also mentions that cellular technology has also brought forth the use of solar energy to power devices, a very favorable and useful outcome in the world of technology.
