Our December issue is more than just an exhaustive guide to the greatest creations of the year. It’s a forecast. For 23 years, the Best of What’s New awards have gone to the 100 innovations that indicate where technology is headed in the future. Here, in this special section of PopSci.com, we present all 100 products, with plenty of accompanying photos and video.
Some are audaciously beautiful, like the 562 horsepower, $230,000 Ferrari 458 Italia. Some are products you can go home and buy tonight, like the Nikon D3s. Others you'll most likely need to travel some distance to admire, like Dubai's awe-inspiring Burj Khalifa. And then there are the dead-simple game-changers like the Groasis Waterboxx, our Innovation of the Year, with the potential to better the lives of millions affected by deforestation and overfarming.
Dive in to our 11 categories to see what revolution looks like.
