Dirt Devil, Sony Walkman, pacemaker among most-influential gadgets

Posted: Updated:

The Sony Walkman, the pop-up toaster, the Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner, the pacemaker, the self-winding watch, the Polaroid camera, and (of course) the Apple iPod are among the 100 most-influential inventions of the past 100 years, according to a survey of thousands of gadget fans.

Gadget Show Live commissioned the survey.

"When we talk about gadgets, we often talk in terms of the 80s onwards -- of phones, laptops and music systems," said Gadget Show Live event manager Katie Tozer, in a Daily Mail report. "But gadgets have been around for hundreds of years."
