The best of... retro tech
Polaroid OneStep 2
“The Polaroid instant camera is back.” A decade after it vanished, the iconic point-andshoot is being reintroduced Oct. 16 by the Dutch company that bought the brand. Updates include USB charging—“and that’s about it.”
Tivoli Model One
Listening to music by tuning in a Tivoli analog radio “feels alarmingly civil.” The time-tested Model One has tidy knobs and a handsome walnut cabinet, and “the sound quality is great.” For Bluetooth connectivity, add $30.
Big Chill Induction Range
Big Chill specializes in retro-style appliances, and this range has all the modern conveniences, including true convection and a Power Booster function that’ll boil a gallon of water in under 5 minutes.
Super Nintendo Classic Edition
Encouraged by last year’s “insanely successful” NES Classic Edition, Nintendo has now released a miniaturized version of 1990’s Super Nintendo. Don’t worry about dusty cartridges— the console comes preloaded with 21 classic 16-bit games.
There are cheaper mechanical Bluetooth keyboards, but this sturdy metal throwback offers “truly old-school inspiration.” It includes a stand for a tablet, but can also pair with a laptop or desktop computer.
