The Most Popular Gadget In History?, What piece of consumer electronics technology was the fastest to gain consumer acceptance? According to a Consumer Electronics Association survey, the answer isn’t the color TV or cell phone. It’s the boombox.

The boombox found its way into just over 60% of households by its seventh year on the market. A handful of other technologies were quick to gain acceptance in the same time span of seven years, though none surpassed the speed at which the boombox did.

CD players were in about 55% of households, DVD players were in about 50%, and VCRs were in about 40%.
