The article offers a different approach to the history of technics. But this is a scientific approach. From the authors point of view, the history of technics may and should be treated as a history of technological transformations. This way of thinking enables all those who study technics not only to understand the process of technogenesis but to learn to improve technics also.

Key words: History,Technics,Technology,Conception,Methodology,Transformation,Invention.
