Popular Science takes the annual Best of What's New winners very seriously. Items are scrutinized by independent researchers, vetted by third parties, and defended to a panel of dubious editors. The Pop Sci stamp of approval is not easily won.
Once our winners are chosen, however, we can ease up and get excited about sharing our choices with you all. And what makes us even more excited is when sales, like today’s Cyber Monday bargains, let you experience them, too.
