What we love most about selecting the Best of What's New every year is that each of these 100 innovations really exists. For 24 years now, we have seen physical dispatches from the future, held them in our hands, and marveled. They felt impossible a year ago and even today seem almost magical. And yet, here they are.
All 100 are showcased here: the products you can buy, like the dramatic JawSaw; the ones you can't yet but might own a version of some day, like the espionage hummingbird; and winners like the longest train tunnel ever built, a wonder of engineering you'll have to go see.
