The latest "Kids React" video from the Fine Brothers, Benny and Rafi Fine, features confused and fascinated children when presented with a typewriter.

Analog typewriters have seemingly long been replaced by digital word processors such as desktop computers, smartphones and tablet devices. While they may be considered "ancient," adults will most likely remember the typewriter from their younger years.

Children, of course, most likely have not seen one in person. Surprisingly though, many children knew what the old word processor was, after seeing the machine on TV shows.

Several children, with ages between 6 years old and 13 years old and raised in a world where keyboards only exist attached to monitors or displayed on touchscreens, expressed both confusion and fascination when shown a typewriter in the video.

"It is basically like a computer, all except it doesn't have a screen," a 7-year-old boy named Evan said.

Evan had said a pretty good description of what the typewriter looked like. However, the children were generally stumped by how the typewriter worked.

When the children were taught how to use the typewriter, including how to load the paper into the machine, they were given the chance to operate it and hear, for the first time, the nostalgic sound of the clicking and clacking of the typewriter's keys.

"It looks really ancient," said 11-year-old Jayka, as she studied what she had typed with the machine. "I feel so fancy."

Most people would see the typewriter as an inferior version of today's modern computers. However, an 8-year-old girl named Emma R. saw the machine's advantages and even declared it as a better device than a computer.

"Computers have batteries and electricity and stuff," said Emma R. "This won't waste electricity. Don't waste electricity!"

However, the children's thoughts on having to use the typewriter and their sentiments for people that had no choice but to use it decades ago were summed up by the comments of a 6-yeard-old boy named Lucas.

"I feel very sad for them," said Lucas. "They can't FaceTime, they can't do messages, they can't do work, they can't play games."

While the children had fun using the typewriter, the group was generally happy that iPads and desktop computers have come along.

Other "Kids React" videos that the Fine Brothers have uploaded included those that featured the Nintendo Game Boy and the Rotary Phone. The Fine Brothers also made a video that had the opposite theme of asking elderly people of what they thought of Google Glass.
