What is the most influential gadget in ever invented? In conjunction with Popular Mechanics Magazine, HISTORY has assembled a panel of the world's most renowned tech gurus to generate the definitive list of 101 gadgets.

The history of the gadget is both the history of invention and the history of men's lives. What alpha male doesn't remember when they achieved mastery of the iPhone, the Swiss Army Knife, the Walkman, the condom? And while gadgets act as milestones in our personal narratives, what goes unnoticed is that gadgets can also change the course of history. How many people know that the transistor radio created rock and roll, or that the audio-cassette overthrew the Shah of Iran?

Find out the historically game-changing stories behind the gadgets we now take for granted, from the combination lock to the zippo lighter, to the bra. Experts offer their insights into the gadgets that inspired, amused or confused them as HISTORY conducts a fun, fact-filled countdown to reveal the single most influential gadget ever invented.
