The 50 Most Influential Gadgets of All Time

Think of the gear you can’t live without: The smartphone you constantly check. The camera that goes with you on every vacation. The TV that serves as a portal to binge-watching and -gaming. Each owes its influence to one model that changed the course of technology for good.

It’s those devices we’re recognizing in this list of the 50 most influential gadgets of all time.

New Time Unit – the .beat

Instead of dividing the virtual and real day into 24 hours and 60 minutes per hour, the Internet Time system divides the day into 1000 “.beats”. Each .beat is 1 minute and 26.4 seconds.

New Meridian

Internet Time is based on a new Meridian (as opposed to the Greenwich Meridian). This new Meridian goes through Swatch’s office in Biel, Switzerland and is called the BMT Meridian.

BMT – the reference for Internet Time

Biel Mean Time (BMT) is another invention of Swatch. It is linked up to the Central European Winter/Standard time, which is UTC + 1 hour. When it is Midnight in BMT, the Internet Time is @000 beats, Noon is @500 beats.
