There is a lot of talk about the future of technology, but one of our current campaigns wants to celebrate the past. Showcasing collections of technology relics alongside up and coming future tech. They want to create a meeting point, an homage to games past, as well as supporting the technology community in New Zealand.
“It’s great to go back to your childhood and show your kids the games you used to play. Each of these pieces has its own amazing backstory of people who worked long hours to bring the technology into being.” says Mark Barlow, the main collector and instigator of this campaign.
