Summary
The history of the gadget is both the history of invention and the history of men's lives.

Necessity is the mother of invention--from darkness, man found light (the candle) and from even the farthest distances we can still find each other (the telephone). From the catapult to the stealth fighter, the most basic and the most complex weapons alike have changed the course of history--and with it, our world. Our lives are so full of stuff these days that the average object is instantly forgettable.

Across borders, cultures and time, food is one thing that all people share. And from the time of the caveman to today's spaceman we like our food to go
