Presented by Portable Universe, 'The Money Behind Retro Tech' infographic provides examples to prove that there could potentially be plenty of value to outdated gadgets that may seem worthless today.

While the chart warns that not all retro devices have appreciated in value over the years, some of the most groundbreaking and technologically revolutionary items have become a thousand times more valuable today than they were back when they first came out. Rarities like the first digital watch and the first Apple computer have become collector's items and are auctioned off at very high price points.

Some of today's novel technology could very easily become the retro tech of the future so consider holding on to items like 3D printers. Stats for Vintage Gadget Value Charts Trending: Older & Buzzing
