In archaeological digs, they often date finds according to what they discover at the site: certain kinds of pots were formed and fired a certain way within a twenty year period, and certain jewelry was only made with a particular type of clasp for a ten year period, where the two overlap tells scientists what era they are from.

I believe you are being asked to draw something that could only be found in 2008 or later (something that came out this year) and something that was around (wouldn’t be rare) during this year. Likewise with identifying another time period in history by drawing two thing common to that era. Robert E. Howard dated his Purtian character by this means: Solomon Kane carried a rapier and a flint pistol (not to be confused with the later flintlocks) and they could have only been acquired together in a five year period.

You could draw your cell phone, a flat TV, iPod, etc…

I hope this helps.
