Popular Mechanics is an American magazine devoted to science and technology. It was first published January 11, 1902 by H. H. Windsor, and has been owned since 1958 by the Hearst Corporation. There are nine international editions, including a Latin American version that has been published for decades and a newer South African edition.

Popular Mechanics features regular sections on automotive, home, outdoors, science, and technology topics. A recurring column is "Jay Leno's Garage" featuring observations by the famed late-night talk show host and vehicle enthusiast.[1][2]

Popular Mechanics is a subsidiary of the Hearst Corporation, which also has an ownership stake in the History Channel.
