The hottest gadgets of 1985

It seems like only yesterday for the Gen-X crowd, but it was 30 years ago that some of the most influential innovations in consumer technology were introducing.

Car Phones

For the millennial generation it may be hard to imagine what life would be like without ubiquitous internet, smartphones, digital music and social media. But for those of us Gen-Xers that grew up in the 1980s, here’s the pinnacle of tech that continues to inspire us, even 30 years later.

In 1985, cell phones were so new to the market and so large that they weren’t even portable per se — they had to be installing in your car. Here’s the two coolest dudes on TV at the time — Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas in the first season of Miami Vice sporting a car phone in their Ferrari Daytona.

Radio Pagers

If you were someone folks needing to reach —  like a doctor or a lawyer, and you weren’t in your car, then you needed to have a pager, also known as a “beeper”, which worked with an answering service your clients called into and then a radio signal was sending out that made your pager clipped on your belt beep or vibrate. Then you had to call that service back on a regular telephone. Eventually, pagers evolved to be able to send short two-way numeric and full alpha messages — much like we have Tweets today, but cell phones quickly displaced them in the 1990s. But if you had one of these in 1985, you were important.

Cincinati Microwave ESCORT radar detector

If you had a need… for speed — that is, on the highway, then you needed a radar detector. But not just any radar detector. The sure sign of any confident BMW or Porsche driver of the mid-80s was a Cincinnati Microwave ESCORT, which could give you warnings of X and K- band police radar from at least a mile away. While radar detectors are now mostly obsolete due to instant-on laser and other police anti-speeder technology, in the 1980s, you could have a lot of fun with one of these.

Sony Discman

Compact Discs (CDs) were first introduced in 1982, but the first portable CD player, released by SONY came out in 1985. While indeed portable, SONY’s cassette-based Walkman was still considering to be a better mobile music solution because the spinning discs were prone to skipping from bumps if you were out for a jog or had the device installed in your car.

Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)

Before there was PlayStation, before XBOX, there was the NES. Sure, there were video game systems that came before it, such as the Atari 2600, Intellivision and Colecovision, but none of those really could produce arcade quality graphics and gameplay at home. This was the console that launched the Super Mario empire.
