Beginning with a special press roll-out in San Francisco last month and concluding with this week's release, players "peeled the onion" on Mass Effect 2 to discover what this game can do -- and what subsequent games will be able to do in the future.

But, Mass Effect 2 is evolving what games can become holistically -- making folks dream of what could be possible in Mass Effect 3.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
