50 best inventions of 2008
A story in Computer World points to Time Magazine's recently released list of the top 50 inventions of 2008. Topping the list is the $400 genetic test from "23 and me" (which we've blogged about). Other inventions on the list: Samsung's Touch Sight camera for the blind; the invisibility cloak (drat, not for sale yet); smog-eating cement; Hulu; the Time Eater clock (depicting time as a wave) unveiled by Stephen Hawking; Google's Floating Data Center (see the patent application); and sound-enhanced food.
