Technology has always moved at a blistering pace and so it is with consumer technology. It seems as though we've just barely gotten our hands on the latest and greatest piece of life changing tech when it is rendered obsolete by a rival product or a new iteration of the product you've just bought. It can be very tempting to assume that our outmoded tech has been rendered obsolete, worthless, junk and fit only for recycling (whatever you do don't throw old tech in the trash, the consequences for the environment are dire). Besides which, that old tech gathering dust in your attic or sitting in storage boxes in your parents' basement could well be worth more than you might expect.
In uncertain times, it seems as though we tend to look to the old and familiar for comfort and reassurance. And it's fair to say that we live in decidedly uncertain times. From the controversy of the Trump administration in the US to the pessimism of the Brexit movement in the UK, the English speaking world has good reason to yearn for a simpler time when we seemed less divided and unsure.
Perhaps this is what's inspired the retro tech boom in recent years. People draw enormous comfort both from old tech they loved in younger life and more modern tech given a retro design makeover. Here we'll look at some of the tech that could make you a small fortune. It could even develop into a lucrative side hustle. Visit our website at BrockRJohnson.com to see how you can leverage the power of Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA) to set up a thriving business without any overhead costs with the logistical support of one of the world's biggest retailers. Whatever platform you choose to sell with, there's no denying that there's money to be made.
Games and Consoles
Every parent's attic has at least one games console that was treasured by their children in youth but sits gathering dust in their adulthood. Dusting the cobwebs off old games consoles can be lucrative, especially if you ever owned a rare or obscure console like the Neo Geo, Atari Jaguar, or Sega Dreamcast. Even old Nintendo Entertainment Systems can fetch a pretty penny on the right platforms.
Of course, there isn't just money to be made from old consoles, many of the games themselves fetch great prices on the direct-to-consumer market. Check out these rare and valuable retro games. If you were the kind of kid who kept their tech in its original box and in great condition, you could really benefit from this fastidiousness now.
If you were something of a shutterbug growing up, you'll be delighted to learn that the market for pre-digital cameras is alive and well, with plenty of buyers willing to pay top dollar for vintage cameras. Your old Instamatic or Brownie could be worth thousands if it has been kept in great working order.
