50 Gadgets that changed the world

From the telephone to the microwave, T3 unveils 50 gadgets that changed the world forever

Gadgets come and go, but a select handful leave the world irrevocably altered. The list of 50 products in the gallery to your right contains kit - from mobile devices to computers to home entertainment tech - that wasn't just good, it helped change for the better the way we all live our lives. We let you have your say on the all-time tech heroes and now we have decided on our definitive gadget pack. So (drum roll please), see the gallery of world-changing tech.

Many of the Images you see in this very feature come courtesy of The Centre for Computing History, a museum in Suffolk that tells the story of the Information Age. Everything from the first computers and games consoles to video players, mobile phones PDAs and more can be seen there. Take a walk through its gadget hall of fame and you'll see just how far we've come...
