The virtual ‘Museum of Obsolete Objects’ is an interesting initiative from the Santarcangelo di Romagna Museum Institute. Not something you would expect from a museum that usually focuses on anthropology, ethnography and renaissance art, the video profiles timeless products from days gone by.

As a memory for future generations, the Museum of Obsolete Objects intends to collect, physically and virtually, milestone innovations of contemporary civilization, including the compact cassette, the typewriter, the floppy disk and the telephone booth. Basically, any kind of commonly used objects whose use is slowly diminishing.

The virtualization of the collection happens on the Museum’s website or YouTube channel. The collection consists of videos that explain all there is to know about each innovation, such as the year it was created, the inventor, how it worked and the approximate year of its defunct.
