Are you feeling a little nostalgic? Flashback in time with this Polaroid inspired take on flashcards. Find out how much you remember from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.

Here’s some info on how I made this:

Camera: I built out the Polaroid camera graphic using a variety of shapes in Storyline. This gave me the flexibility to individually animate each piece.

Instructions: The animated instructions were created 100% in Storyline. I used animations, motion paths, and triggers to create the motion graphic gif feeling.

Photo Vector: I leveraged David Anderson’s handy dandy Polaroid Vector Graphics download throughout this quiz. (Thanks, David!)

Drag & Drop Color Change: The photos turn red or green when dragged left or right using Storyline 360 intersecting triggers.

I hope this example brings back some fond memories of the good old times. What 70s, 80s, and 90s items do you remember?

Beautiful!  I'm so old I have forgotten about all those devices already!  But I did have the motorola phone (my dad had the first one in our town) and finally got rid of it in a garage sale a couple years ago.  Some young boy bought it--I'm sure he just wanted to take it apart to see how it worked.  It was about the size of a shoebox.

Thanks for participating but could you please suggest me what do you mean by the size of shoebox.

@walmart Ali - a "shoebox" is a term that describes the box that a pair of shoes is sold in. Shoeboxes are generally a similar size and (of course) similar shape, regardless of the shoes one may get. So when Jodi said that the moto phone was "about the size of a shoebox" she was saying the size of the phone was similar to the size of a typical shoebox. In this case, that would be an appropriate description: about 6 inches (length) by 4 inches (depth) by 12 inches (height). ("Mobile" phones, yes, but clearly not very easy to carry around.)
