From the iPhone to the Cronut, the last decade has changed the game for all of us on this big blueberry we call Earth.

We can talk to our phones, stalk another planet on the internet, drive our cats crazy with iPad goldfish and most importantly we don’t need anybody to take an epic picture for us – two words: Selfie Stick.

With that in mind, here’s a list of some of the most ground shaking creations in the last ten years. 

Human race, you done good. 

2006

Wii

We all know Nintendo Wii: the Skiing, the intense tennis tournaments with family, the freakish globular avatars of ourselves hopping around the screen. Brilliant.


2007

iPhone

The year we all started swiping. 2007 will go down as a super year for technology. Other releases over that magical 12 months; The Kindle and BBC iPlayer to name a few.


2008

Android

giphy

Google’s mobile operating system, designed for touch screen devices. Its release divided earth between android and iPhone users. So which one are you?


2009

Ares Rocket

NASA’s pride and joy. A rocket created to take us to infinity and beyond.


2010

iPad

Or the moment when parent’s all over the world started embarrassing children with iPad photo snapping in public.


2011

Bloodhound

A British supersonic land vehicle with a goal to exceed 1,000 miles per hour. That’s zippy.


2012

The Curiosity Rover

NASA officially released our only friend on Mars in August of 2012. Four years and many robot selfies later we’ve learned more about our fellow planet than we dreamed.


2013

Cronut

The pastry progeny of a donut and a croissant. The cronut was invented in New York City and is flaky, soft, carb heaven.


2014

The Selfie Stick

A far worse follow up to embarrassing iPad public photography, the God dam selfie stick. What did we unleash…


2015

Hoverboard

giphy

Dickbags and hipsters can now get from A to B in double-quick douchey time.


2016

Solar Roof

 Elon Musk recently launched Tesla’s Solar Roof— glass solar roof tiles mighty enough to run an entire battery powered house. Sure beats fossil fuels.


2017, come at us bro.
