Blair McMillan, 26, and his girlfriend Morgan, 27, of Guelph, Ontario, decided to live with only technology from 1986, the year they were born, because their two children were obsessed with iPads and iPhones.


And radios instead of streaming music. They even do their banking in person, develop rolls of film for $20, and live in a home built in the '80s. Their kids spend more time reading and playing outside now, but they are allowed to play Super Mario.

"It feels weird," Blair, who rocks an incredible and authentic '80s mullet and mustache combo, told The Toronto Sun. "It feels like we’re really going back in time." They plan to live this way until April 2014.
