He had tears in his eyes as he recalled his marriage with his late wife and saw her picture come to life because of technology.
The older generation finds immense fascination in understanding the inner workings of technology and witnessing its ability to revive cherished memories. Such was the case with an elderly man, whose heartwarming reaction was a testament to the profound impact it had on him. In a TikTok video posted by @dannys_world_official, the man is seen looking at his wife's old picture, and as he presses the play button, her face and eyes start moving.
"Holy smokes, she's alive," he says in astonishment. A woman in the background can be heard saying, "Yeah, it brings the picture to life." The overlay text reads, "They brought his wife's picture to life. What a beautiful moment." He continues, "Look at this. Oh, God!" He still seems shocked at how the technology could bring her face and expressions to life. The woman asks him, "Isn't that amazing?" Meanwhile, he just keeps looking at the picture and becomes emotional and says, "I can't believe it. It is her." Then he wipes tears from his eyes.
"Yeah, it's like she's here," says the woman. He begins to share more about his marriage, "This past November 23rd, we would have been married 75 years. And I still love her," says the man in tears while looking at the picture. The woman also responds, "I love her too."
The heartwarming video went viral with more than 700k likes. It is captioned, "What a beautiful moment." People were also emotional after watching the man's reaction to his wife's pictures. @joshperry17 commented, "He seems so sweet. I'm literally tearing up watching this." @queenmillie1967 wrote, "He said and I still love her! What a special kind of love! She must have been an amazing woman."
@namaste4441 expressed, "Awe bless his heart. I’m so glad it brought him joy to see her again." @stevebliznicenko pointed out, "How amazing it would be to find that kind of love. So special." @syrroseasmr said, "This made me cry. I was so happy for him." This man is the epitome of what true love means and how the memories that are once created with a special person would remain for a lifetime.
Technology surely amazes the older generation. In another beautiful example of this fact, when a grandpa realizes how a 3D printer works and what it can do, he was astonished at how much one can accomplish. In the video posted on Reddit by u/davidwallacecto, a grandson tells his grandfather, Kenny, that the machine in front of him is a 3D printer and he then shows him a thing that is made with it. He asks him to take it and feel it.
After which, he shows him how the machine works. The person behind the camera tells him, "You can make anything. You can make glasses. You can make eyeglasses." It makes him more curious about the printer and he asks, "But where does it go?" His grandson replies, "This comes through this tube called the Bowden tube."
Later, he tells him that the thing he is holding is made out of sugarcane and without any oil. He says that he can't believe it. He even tells him that he can taste the sugarcane. Toward the end of the video, the grandpa asks his grandson if he could buy this thing that the 3D printer made and he tells him to keep it.
