Every Apple Product In 40 Seconds: Video Shows 36 Years Of Design Progression (VIDEO)

The boxy 1984 Macintosh, the colorful "Flavor" series of iMacs, and the first-generation iPod are commonly cited milestones in the evolution of Apple design. But true fanboys will fondly remember there were more than a few flops along the way.

Over its 36-year history, Apple's designers have tried their hands at everything from cameras and keyboards to "message pads" and awkward round mouses.

But Rob Beschizza, managing editor of Boing Boing, wanted to give credit where credit was due, so he decided to make a montage of every Apple design he could find.

"I'm a Sony guy, at heart, but even if each of its products were given only a single frame of animation, such a video would not end before the heat death of the universe," Beschizza said in a post on Boing Boing.

Luckily, Beschizza's montage clocked in at 39 seconds, more than enough time to get your daily recommended dose of Lisa, G4 Cube and the "Hockey Puck" mouse.

Check out the video above to see how many designs you can spot.
