One way to make technology appeal to late adaptors or design enthusiasts is to add a retro flair to tech designs. Trend Hunter Editor Michael Hemsworth discusses his favorite examples of retro tech, from filtered polaroid cameras
to vintage typewriter-inspired keyboards and 60s-inspired smartphone docks.

If you are a fan of Instagram or even Pinterest, a revamped camera from Lomography allows you to add filters and print pictures. Or if you are into collecting old typewriters, a vintage looking keyboard that hooks up to your iPad is another hipster-esque way to go. If you're missing Mad Men, a wooden analog-clock featuring smartphone dock is both simple and significant. On the other hand, if you're reminiscing about a different decade there is a tape recorder themed music player that plays into the old school tech designs theme quite nicely.
