Inventions of the Year

Time magazine’s annual list of innovation, gadgets, and doodads is out.

The winner, to hardly anyone’s surprise, is Apple’s iPhone.

However, I find these annual reports fascinating. There’s lots of other really cool inventions, and plenty of other cool things in Time’s annual issue.

Here’ a few of the more interesting items:
