The Top 100 Gadgets of All Time is a pretty good list. Though I have to dock a few points for repeating the "Cosmonauts used pencils" urban legend. Bad editor! Bad! OTOH, I did not know that "Taser" was a clever reference to Tom Swift, so I’ll forgive them…this time.
A few proposed additions to the list:
- Milton-Bradley Big Trak which introduced a generation of kids to programming and robotics.
- Curta mechanical calculator an ingenous device from the days long before computers
- Dremel Moto-Tool favorite tool of everyone from case modders to model ship builders
