Bob Dylan was on to something when he sang, "The Times They Are a-Changing" in 1964. He was talking about the political climate and inspiring social change, but one thing that he did not foresee was how quickly technology from that era was changing.

Brother, the company responsible for some of this "innovation," has found a creative use for this tech detritus by putting some of their old printers to work in "The Printer Orchestra" a cool video that shows old equipment performing Dylan's classic anthem. Now, here's hoping they disposed of the equipment responsibly after the "orchestra" performed.

The protest was partially a response to the company's so-called "Great Workplace" restructuring initiative which Walmart began testing last year and plans to roll out in at least 1,100 of its 5,300 U.S. stores by the end of 2020.
