Courtesy of AT&T, William Shatner explains how the microprocessor and microelectronics work.  You’re probably thinking, “So what, my five year old knows how that works.”  Yeah, but this video was made in 1976.  The “modern technology” shown in the video are literally antiques by today’s standards and wouldn’t fetch you a dime if you tried to sell it.  The Shat is as cool looking as ever and if you close your eyes and just listen, you’d swear it was Captain Kirk giving you a history lesson.  Anyway, the video is a little short of 15 minutes and well worth your time, even just to reminisce about how things use to be.
