Steve Wozniak beams like an excited little kid when he tells the story of how he first fell for tech. It's kind of endearing.

His eyes widen, he speaks fast and he waves his hands everywhere. Watching him reminisce, you get the feeling that the Apple co-founder still cherishes those special formative times, the little moments that led to bigger ones that changed life as we know it.

The 65-year-old electronics whiz -- who single-handedly created the Apple I in 1976 -- giddily skips down memory lane in this captivating Reddit interview video released earlier this week. The fun look back on the Silicon Valley millionaire's entrepreneurial journey plays like an inspiring lifetime highlight reel. The video was released as a companion to his recent Reddit AMA.

If you have six minutes and change, it's worth watching all the way through.
