Even though the very newest gadgets and gizmos are our lifeblood, we're also in love with products that achieved perfection ages ago. We're dedicating a section of Gizmodo Gallery to iconic product designs so excellent that history won't forget them.

It's our job to cover technology's persistant advances, sure, but there's something gorgeous about the designs we like to call Past Perfect. Some of these products, like the Sony Dream Machine ICF-C10W and the Polaroid SX-70, are long gone—the victims of technology's relentless march through history. But our love ain't so much nostalgia as admiration.

These were and continue to be incredible products. They each fulfilled a singular need so well that perfection, in some small sliver of our existence, suddenly seemed attainable. They helped usher in a new epoch of product consciousness. Far from gone, their influence lives on in the countless derivations we all use every day.
