This Re-Imaginations of Instagram on Windows 95 is Super Hilarious
There’s no denying that technology is advancing at an incredibly high speed and what we’re talking about as modern today may turn out to be vintage tomorrow. For instance, you can imagine how digital cameras, which were so trendy a few years back, are now redundant thanks to the introduction of smartphones.
Even though these swift advancements are now common place, creative Russian graphic designer, Misha Petrick, has taken it a notch higher in a super hilarious way by re-imagining how one of the currently trendiest apps: Instagram would appear on Windows 95.
While the chunky operating system that was very popular back then may now appear so backward, Petrick’s re-imagination is an evocative reminder of how far we’ve come technologically. It seems so crazy to even contemplate that the graphics of computers looked this ridiculous some two decades ago.
“The idea of making these funny GIFs hit me when I thought it would be essential for modern kids to look at Instagram the way we saw things on computers at that same age,” Petrick said. “As kids growing up in the 90s, we saw Windows 95 as really cool just in the same way today’s kids see Instagram,” she added.
