In 2011, Popular Mechanics gathered a panel of experts—esteemed inventors, designers, tech gurus, even a moonwalking astronaut—to create a definitive list of 101 gadgets that changed the course of history.

Ranging from the microscope, bicycle, and transistor radio to the hearing aid, electric guitar, and Roomba, this compilation is sure to fuel debates—especially when it comes to the 10 top choices.
