The Time list of 10 most influential gadgets of all time

The most influential gadgets of all time

Actually it’s not the Time list of 10 most influential gadgets of all time, it is the 50 most influential gadgets of all time. But who has the time to go through all the 50 most influential gadgets of all time? I think 10 will do, in ascending order:

  • Magic Wand – 10
  • Apple iPod – 9
  • Kodak Brownie Camera – 8
  • Regency TR-1 Transistor Radio – 7
  • Victrola Record Player – 6
  • IBM Model 5150 – 5
  • Sony Walkman -4
  • Apple Macintosh – 3
  • Sony Trinitron – 2
  • Apple iPhone – 1

Whether you go with the complete list of the 50 most influential gadgets of all time or you just want to stick with 10 gadgets, one thing becomes clear, at least if you go through the list of these 10 gadgets, that most of them are entertainment -related and hence, majority of these gadgets come from companies providing entertainment gadgets like Sony Walkman, Sony Trinitron, Apple iPod and Apple iPhone. I wouldn’t call Apple iPhones completely entertainment gadgets because you also use them for communication, but then who uses an iPhone merely for communication these days?

I think the expression “all-time” is a bit overstretching. There are thousands of gadgets that have been influential and that haven’t been included in the list. These gadgets have existed for a few thousand years.
