In January of 1902, 3 pennies could have bought you the first edition of Popular Mechanics magazine. It was written to bring the world of science and technology to the public as “An Illustrated Weekly Review of the Mechanical Press of the World”. The earliest editions focused on advances in science across the globe and were written so that everybody could learn from each story. After WWII, hoping to bring in new readers, the magazine changed its tagline to “Written So You Can Understand It”.
